Abstract
This paper suggests that changes in temporal constructs and disjunctures between the 'technical time' perspective of Canadian Arctic settlements and the indigenous cyclical and linear temporal orientation of Inuit peoples relate to increasing incidence of psycho- and sociopathologies in these communities. It argues that loss of community integration through the replacement of Inuit historical linear time perspectives by Eurocanadian settlement history, and dissociation from the land and its seasonally cyclical migratory and exploitive patterns are of particular significance for the younger, settlement-born, temporally marginalized Inuit who constitute the highest risk population for mental ill-health.

Abstract
Northern-based research on mental health support, no matter the specific profession, helps to inform instruction of new practitioners and practitioners already working in rural or isolated conditions. Understanding the complexities of northern mental health support not only benefits clients and practitioners living in the North, but also helps prepare psychologists and counsellors preparing to work in other countries with large rural and isolated populations. The qualitative phase is part of a multi-year research study on informal and formal mental health support in northern Canada involving the use of qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods.
The main objective of the qualitative phase interviews was to document in-depth the situation of formal and informal helpers in providing mental health support in isolated northern communities in northern British Columbia, northern Alberta, Yukon and Northwest Territories (NWT). The intent of in-depth interviews was to collect descriptive information on the unique working conditions of northern helping practitioners for the development of a survey and subsequent community action plans for helping practitioner support.
Twenty participants in northern BC, Yukon and NWT participated in narrative interviews. Consensual qualitative research (CQR) was used in the analysis completed by 7 researchers. The principal researcher and research associate then worked through all 7 analyses, defining common categories and themes, and using selections from each researcher in order to ensure that everyone's analysis was represented in the final consensual summary.
The preliminary results include 7 main categories consisting of various themes. Defining elements of northern practice included the need for generalist knowledge and cultural sensitivity. The task of working with and negotiating membership in community was identified as essential for northern mental health support. The need for revised codes of ethics relevant to the reality of northern work was a major category, as was insight on how to best sustain northern practice.
Many of the practitioners who participated in this study have found ways to overcome the biggest challenges of northern practice, yet the limitations of small populations and lack of resources in small communities to adequately address mental health support were identified as existing. Empowering communities by building community capacity to educate, supervise and support formal and informal mental health workers may be the best approach to overcoming the lack of external resources.

Abstract
Examines mental health problems in the Canadian arctic with regard to (a) types of illness observed, (b) major etiological factors involved in emotional breakdown in the north, and (c) the problem of delivering service to arctic communities. In considering problems, it is necessary for the mental health consultant to distinguish between native and nonnative Canadians. When regarding Eskimo Canadians, their increasing use of alcohol is essential to their mental health problems. The main problems in the nonnative population involve persons who had moved from a southern community to the north. Etiological problems are mainly related to the erosion of native culture by "civilized" invaders. Suggestions include setting up an appropriate administrative chart that would permit coordination of mental health services maintained at community level.

Abstract
NMHOP planning was undertaken in the aftermath of memorable 1990 Canadian sociopolitical events which aligned First Nations against the Conservative majority government. Canadian colonial history restricted Native people to unequal marginal participation in the socioeconomic benefits bestowed on other Canadian citizens. This paper discusses the theoretical bases undergirding NMHOP's architecture, including: the history of colonialism and its disempowering effects on individual and community; tile cultural clash of aboriginal/Euro-Canadian worldviews; the historic neglect of a Canadian Native mental health policy; and the importance of fundamental equality and freedom of choice as minimal structural conditions upon which the mental health of individuals depends. The paper concludes with extraction or inference of eight general grounding principles for a Native community mental health outreach project, with "empowerment" the architectonic one implicit in each of the others.

Abstract
This survey is part of a multi-year research study on informal and formal mental health support in northern Canada involving the use of qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods in an effort to better understand mental health in a northern context.
The main objective of the 3-year study was to document the situation of formal and informal helpers in providing mental health support in isolated northern communities in northern British Columbia, northern Alberta, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The intent of developing a survey was to include more participants in the research and access those working in small communities who would be concerned regarding confidentiality and anonymity due to their high profile within smaller populations.
Based on the in-depth interviews from the qualitative phase of the project, the research team developed a survey that reflected the main themes found in the initial qualitative analysis. The on-line survey consisted of 26 questions, looking at basic demographic information and presenting lists of possible challenges, supports and client mental health issues for participants to prioritise.
Thirty-two participants identified various challenges, supports and client issues relevant to their mental health support work. A vast majority of the respondents felt prepared for northern practice and had some level of formal education. Supports for longevity included team collaboration, knowledgeable supervisors, managers, leaders and more opportunities for formal education, specific training and continuity of care to support clients.
For northern-based research in small communities, the development of a survey allowed more participants to join the larger study in a way that protected their identity and confidentiality. The results from the survey emphasise the need for team collaboration, interdisciplinary practice and working with community strengths as a way to sustain mental health support workers in the North.

Abstract
The concepts of mental health and illness of the Inuit of Nunavik (Northern Quebec) were studied through ethnographic interviews, participant observation and a questionnaire survey. The research involved the participation of the community in the selection of survey sites and the identification of appropnate problems for study. Three communities differing in their existing resources and average level of acculturation were studied. Three types of research interview were conducted, corresponding to distinct parts of the project: (1) problem identification interviews with Inuit health care and community workers identified the range of problems in the community and the usual terminology used to describe them, resulting in a list of specific registers of problematic behavior; (2) problem register interviews with key informants from the community identified the perceived prevalence of problems in the community and the typical signs and symptoms associated with each type of behavior or problem; (3) case history interviews with key informants reconstructed detailed accounts of cases1 with which they were personally familiar.

Abstract
Indigenous Peoples in Canada continue to experience health and social inequities in the post-colonial era. The Inuit are one aggregate whose livelihoods have been drastically altered through government subsistence programs and residential schools. The loss of culture, community, and relationships have had a negative impact on this population, particularly youth, as evidenced by high rates of suicide and issues with mental health and substance abuse. A search of scholarly and gray literature was completed to identify factors that contribute to suicide among Inuit youth and potential interventions. While interventions that address mental health and suicidal risk factors have been successful, resources to support programs have not been sustained. This paper highlights suicide and mental illness among Inuit youth as a preventable issue that stakeholders and policymakers can address through participatory approaches in collaboration with the community.
