Climate Change Rattles Mental Health of Inuit in Labrador

CBC just published a promotional article for an upcoming Quirks & Quarks interview about our research on climate change and mental health in Nunatsiavut, Labrador.  The interview will air Saturday, January 11 at 12pm on CBC Radio or online.

Check out the article here.

This research is led by the Rigolet Inuit Community Government, in partnership with the community governments of Nain, Hopedale, Postville, Makkovik, and Rigolet, and the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development.

Research was gathered by local research coordinators in each of the 5 communities:
Inez Shiwak and Marilyn Baikie, Rigolet
Myrtle Groves, Makkovik
Greg Jacque, Postville
Juliana Flowers, Hopedale
Noah Nochasak, Nain

Funding was provided by Health Canada’s First Nations and Inuit Health Branch through the Climate Change and Health Adaptation Program in Northern First Nations and Inuit Communities. Complementary funding was provided by the Nasivvik Centre for Inuit Health and Changing Environments and the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development.
