Life is Sacred Native Youth Suicide Prevention Program

The Native American Rehabilitation Association’s (NARA) Life is Sacred Native Youth Suicide Prevention Program is built upon the unique role culture plays in prevention of youth suicide. Several tools were developed with information for service providers and families on factors that put youth at risk for and protect them from suicide, including a family brochure [pdf - 805 kb] with action-oriented messages on how families can decrease risk youths’ risk and increase protection from suicidal behavior.

The NARA Life Is Sacred Actionable Knowledge Product Suite includes the Life is Sacred Family Brochure and the Children Are Our Greatest Resource PowerPoint slides. Guidelines and talking points for both the brochure and the PowerPoint slides are provided. Talking points for the Family Brochure were developed to serve as conversation starters between parents and those who interact with them (and their children) in various roles. The slides can be used in presentations to Tribal Council, community groups, prospective funders, schools, or other stakeholders.
