In the United States, Native Americans experience higher suicide rates than any other racial or ethnic group. Mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness are integral to combating this issue, and Native youth are at the forefront with solutions. Today, Native youth are creating their own community-based programs, resources and advocacy for mental health and overall wellness. Join us in a conversation and learn how Native teens are addressing this issue.
