Communication is Key: A Youth-Led Review of the Government of Nunavut’s Interagency Information Sharing Protocol for Suicide Prevention
Born and raised in Iqaluit, David Korgak is an advocate for Inuit in Nunavut through his role at Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated. His career affords him the opportunity to see policies and their direct or indirect impacts on Inuit.
David’s policy research paper, Communication is Key: A Youth-Led Review of the Government of Nunavut’s Interagency Information (ISSP) Sharing Protocol for Suicide Prevention, examines how the Government of Nunavut’s Interagency Information Sharing Protocol for suicide prevention can be better equipped to serve the unique needs of youth.

The paper provides several policy and practice recommendations that draw on working sessions with youth. They include making IISP training mandatory for all service providers in Government of Nunavut departments that have signed to the protocol.
