Nunavut Tunngavik Inc.‘s vice-president Jack Anawak says Canada’s first mental health strategy will benefit Nunavut if the government follows its recommendations. Anawak, who contributed to the strategy, says mental health should be a priority in Nunavut, where there’s a need for more treatment programs and facilities. But he added that mental health professionals need to take the social and cultural differences between the North and South into account.
