In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country the NNED selects an organization to highlight once a month. Tokala Inajinyo Suicide Prevention Mentoring Program has been selected as the Partner of the month for September 2014 in recognition of National Suicide Prevention Week (September 8-14).
Tokala Inajinyo Suicide Prevention Mentoring Program program trains youth to be peer mentors, be focused on prevention of suicide, alcohol/drug abuse, domestic violence, unhealthy lifestyles, and negativity from living within a dysfunctional environment. The program provides preventive services in the form of physical activities, emotional relief, exposure to various cultural activities, spiritual activities, and basic health lifestyles to create awareness and pride in their heritage, a sense of self worth as an individual, and the opportunity to therapeutically recover from unsettling issues in a safe environment.
