INDIGENOUS YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION CONFERENCE

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.
