In October of 2016, the Secondary 3 class discussed an article that explained how a First Nation community in Bella Bella successfully dealt with a wave of suicides they had 15 years ago (none since their solutions have been implemented). As they were all touched by this positive article, they started looking for solutions as a class to address some of the issues the students and the community are facing. Some of these solutions were to reconnect with the land, to create a link between the students and the elders and to simply talk about these issues in creative ways.
