Everyone can work together to keep Native people safe and well. Join our virtual Zero Suicide event to learn:

  • the goals of the Zero Suicide framework and what they mean to the health and wellness of Native people
  • how to identify your own roles in supporting Native people who may be at risk for self-harm
  • the importance of attention to the language and taboos around talking about loss to suicide for some Tribes
  • how to develop memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with other community providers to create seamless safety nets for those at risk of suicide
  • how Zero Suicide is culturally responsive to Indian Country
  • how to choose tools that will help you in identifying risk, for clinical and nonclinical care providers and professionals.
