This film emerged from a community-based and community-led research project dedicated to examining the connections between climate change and Inuit mental health in Nunatsiavut, Labrador. The Inuit Mental Health and Adaptation to Climate Change (IMHACC) project was a joint partnership among the five Inuit communities of Nunatsiavut, under the guidance of the Rigolet Inuit Community Government, and became the first regional assessment of climate change and mental health in the Circumpolar North. Data were gathered by Local Research Coordinators in each of the five communities who, together, conducted 120 interviews with community members and health professionals throughout the region. The ‘My Word’: Storytelling and Digital Media Lab in Rigolet also facilitated the creation of 17 digital stories made by Inuit in the region.
