From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards

BOYS OF NUNAVUT

Finalist in Multicultural Community Engagement

Audience Honor in Multicultural Community Engagement

About this entry

In the Inuit Nunangat region of Northern Canada, suicide rates range from 5-25 times the national average. The highest risk group is Inuit males aged 15-29, with rates almost 40 times the national average. In light of this, the Movember Foundation is funding a bespoke program to address this crisis. This short film, The Boys of Nunavut, shows the program in action, and what it means to be a part of it.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

To explore and demonstrate the effectiveness of land-based programs in improving mental health & wellbeing, the Movember Foundation has funded a Circumpolar program in Northern Canada. A team led by Michael Jong from the Labrador & Grenfell Health Authority and Gwen Healey from Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre worked with six community sites to implement and evaluate a variety of initiatives. The program takes at-risk youth out on the land with an experienced hunter who teaches traditional Inuit skills and knowledge to live off the land. The participants learn resilience and self-dependence and through this experience strengthen the ties to their cultural heritage and community.

Results

Boys of Nunavut is a powerful, moving and necessary documentary about the mental health crisis taking place situated in Arviat, Nunavut. Director Andrew Maguire's film shines a light on this issue caused by the loss of identity as a result of assimilation, and the hope that is the Young Hunters Program, an initiative created by community members to help at-risk youth.

The project is showing considerable promise as a means of addressing the needs of young men and boys. Against a backdrop where 1 in 200 young people take their life each year, not one participant in the Young Hunters' Program has been lost to suicide since the project began.
