WE R NATIVE 
In August 2011, the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board created a health text messaging service for Native teens and young adults called WE R NATIVE. The service is designed to address health and social issues that are important to Native youth. 

By texting the word NATIVE to 24587, users can sign-up to receive weekly health tips, contests, and life advice. Standard message and data rates may apply (just like texting your friends).

The service will cover: · Teachings from Native leaders · Wellness and Life Balance · Family Relationships · Mental Health · Tobacco, Drugs and Alcohol · Violence and Bullying · Peer Pressure · Sexual Health · Healthy Relationships · School Pressures · Getting Help · Quizzes, polls, and discussions · Scholarships, conferences, & internships
