SPRC’s Tribal Suicide Surveillance Project has completed a yearlong inquiry, which began in spring 2016, of key informants and tribal Garrett Lee Smith (GLS) grantees. Results including challenges encountered and strategies used to address suicide data topics such as taboo, data sharing, and gaining leadership buy-in will be discussed. Current GLS Project Director with American Indian Health and Family Services, Lauren Lockhart, will also present on their methods of data collection through community screening events and incorporating youth voice in the screening measure.  Webinar participants will also be engaged in audience poll questions to foster a co-learning and open discussion environment.
