Suicide Prevention Article and the Efforts of the National Center for Native American Youth
In an October 11, 20012 letter to tribal leaders and others, former U.S Senator Byron Dorgan stated, “I am writing to update you on the work and accomplishments of the Center for Native American Youth. We are fortunate to have connected with many of you in our efforts and look forward to much more partnership and collaboration with tribes, Indian youth, tribal organizations and agencies to help create more resources to address important issues facing young people in Indian Country.
The Center for Native American Youth was featured in a story about suicide prevention published by Indian Country Today Media Network, NBC and 100reporters.com earlier this week. We were highlighted throughout the article as a hub for efforts related to preventing suicide and addressing challenges facing young people in Indian Country. I am proud of what we have built and grateful for current and future opportunities to really reach out to young people and prevent the tragedies of suicide.”
