A Saskatchewan man helps address suicide among youth

APTN National News
This the second part of our APTN Perspectives series on suicide.

We heard about a cry for help from one First Nation in B.C.- who’ve now declared a state of emergency.

Now we go to Saskatchewan, where more young people attempt suicide than in any other place in Canada.

But we’ll introduce you to a man who is trying to reverse this trend.

Here’s APTN’s Larissa Burnouf.
