The Cross Lake First Nation reservation in Manitoba has declared a state of emergency after 6 suicides in the last two months, and 140 attempts in the last two weeks. With a population of 8,000 this means that nearly 2% of their entire population has attempted suicide in the last two weeks alone. They are begging for mental health staff and an actual hospital, at this point. We must end the ignorance regarding the plight of native people.
