Reach Ur Life Program

Reach UR Life Suicide Prevention Program

NACA’s Reach UR Life suicide prevention program provides training and technical assistance to youth-serving agencies and school systems to build capacity and sustainability in the workforce. Partners who receive training and technical assistance learn to provide early screening, learn to provide resources and support to youth (10-24 years) exhibiting risk factors for suicide. NACA’s RUL program builds upon the National Suicide Prevention Plan and Zero Suicide framework efforts to effectively reduce the rates of suicide and suicide attempts in Northern Arizona. The program focuses on Native American youth in Coconino, Navajo, and Apache Counties and the communities of the Navajo Nation and Hopi tribal areas. NACA’s RUL offers suicide prevention direct services in cooperation with NACA Behavioral Health. NACA’s RUL works in collaboration with NACA’s Native Connections to identify systemic barriers to service access.

The goals within the Reach UR Life program work to promote protective factors and reduce the risk of suicide. The primary intent of this project is to serve American Indian youth ages 10-24 years old primarily within Coconino County, which includes the Navajo Nation and the Hopi tribe.

INDIGENOUS YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION CONFERENCE

September 8-10, 2020 – Hybrid

Hosted virtually and in-person at the Courtyard by Marriott Lake Powell

“Embracing well-being through enlightenment”

The 2021 Indigenous Youth Suicide Prevention conference will continue the Native Americans for Community Action, Inc’s (NACA) Reach UR Life Suicide Prevention programming. As a SAMHSA Garrett Lee Smith Grantee, NACA is expanding on the early screening and referral processes implemented within previous GLS grants by offering training and technical assistance to youth-serving agencies and school systems to build capacity and sustainability in the workforce. We’re welcoming youth, parents and families, community members and Educators, and Behavioral Health professionals to our Conference to promote life and well-being while also serving as a support to reduce the rates of suicide and suicide attempts in Northern Arizona.

The mission of Native Americans for Community Action, Inc., is to provide preventative wellness strategies, empower, and advocate for Native people and others in need to create a healthy community based on Harmony, Respect, and Indigenous Values.

NACA’s Reach UR Life suicide prevention program provides training and technical assistance to youth-serving agencies and school systems to build capacity and sustainability in the workforce.
