The White Mountain Apache Tribe requires community members, first responders, and medical, school, and social service personnel to report suicidal behaviors, non-suicidal self-injury, and binge alcohol and drug use to the tribe’s Celebrating Life project. This program conducts in-person follow-up visits on every report. The data is also included in a secure database that provides the tribe with a unique level of information on suicide and the other reportable behaviors.
