The rate of suicide in First Nation Reservations in Canada was nearly double that of suburban populations. Based in New York, and with the endorsement of the Federal Government of Canada Chris trained over 200 coaches in community and personal intervention to change these and other unfortunate statistics that singled out the First Nation Community as being in a serious transitional crisis.

Over a 5 year period Chris visited remote communities developing close relationships with community leaders, band leaders and youth workers in helping to address the issues and apply solution.

The “youth at risk” work was one of Chris’ greatest learnings. The challenges of making change in communities at an individual level. Many pipe carriers were involved and people of traditional medicine merged with those of more academic outlook to share the “real spirit” mission of Innerwealth Technology.
