The American Indian and Alaska Native National Suicide Prevention Strategic Plan

"This strategic plan is a comprehensive and integrated approach to reducing the loss and suffering from suicide and suicidal behaviors. It brings together multiple disciplines, perspectives, and resources to create an integrated system where services can be accessed across multiple settings. In this way, an individual, a family, a school, and a community can be connected by a continuum of needed services, up to and including the healthcare system. This focus on collaboration marks only the beginning of a much larger long-term process. We are currently bringing the full weight of Tribal leadership, programs, and resources to this problem."

For Suicide Survivors

Sometimes in life, events occur that break the very foundation on which we stand. Our life, as we have known it, seems forever changed and we find ourselves in an unexpected struggle, first just to survive and then to move forward. This site provides support for people coping with the shock and excruciating grief that accompany the loss of a loved one to suicide. It was also designed for survivors further along in their healing journey.
