Suicide is a serious public health problem that affects individuals in various life stages. For youth between the ages of 10 and 24, suicide is the third leading cause of death. It results in approximately 4,600 lives lost each year.1

Suicides and suicide-related behaviors have a profound toll on American Indian and Alaska Native individuals and communities, particularly among their youth. The suicide rate among American Indian/Alaska Native adolescents and young adults ages 15 to 34 (31 per 100,000) is 2.5 times higher than the national average for that age group (12.2 per 100,000).2

Join us on Thursday, May 23, at 12:00 PM EDT as we highlight how one Tribe has been successful in using data to drive decisions and interventions for addressing youth suicide. This 45-minute Webinar will be led by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Deputy Assistant Secretary for Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Dr. Don Wright, and will include a roundtable discussion on the impact of this critical Leading Health Indicator topic.
