There are many issues underlying suicide in Indian Country ‐‐ alcoholism, family violence, child abuse/neglect, depression, and unemployment. Some tribal codes address these issues, but few codes exist for tribal suicide prevention. By fostering partnerships of local community leaders, people can be empowered to identify local problems and participate actively in devising and implementing local solutions.The webinar will offer participants the opportunity to hear directly from on-the-ground implementers who will discuss how they fostered partnerships to address local policy/procedures, implementation of a Tribal surveillance system, and modifications to Juvenile Justice Codes.

Populations:  American Indians and Alaska Natives
Settings:  American Indian/Alaska Native Settings, Juvenile Justice System
