"Enriching the Journey”

Welcome to the 2020 Northern Arizona Indigenous Youth Suicide Prevention Conference Registration page!

This year's conference will continue the Native Americans for Community Action, Inc's (NACA) Reach UR Life Suicide Prevention programming. As a SAMHSA Garrett Lee Smith Grantee, NACA is expanding on the early screening and referral processes implemented within previous GLS grants by offering training and technical assistance to youth-serving agencies and school systems to build capacity and sustainability in the workforce. We're welcoming youth, parents and families, community members and Educators, and Behavioral Health professionals to our Conference to promote life and well-being while also serving as a support to reduce the rates of suicide and suicide attempts in Northern Arizona.

The mission of Native Americans for Community Action, Inc., is to provide preventative wellness strategies, empower, and advocate for Native people and others in need to create a healthy community based on Harmony, Respect, and Indigenous Values.

NACA’s Reach UR Life suicide prevention program provides training and technical assistance to youth-serving agencies and school systems to build capacity and sustainability in the workforce.

This year’s conference seeks to bridge the relationships established with prior program cohorts and “Enrich” continuous efforts to support the vital work of suicide prevention professionals and youth development professionals. Efforts include an emphasis on sustaining professional longevity, including supporting professional well-being. The conference strives to “Enrich” new professionals, including educators, as they seek new tools to support at-risk youth. The conference also seeks to “Enrich” the recovery and well-being efforts by all who have lived experiences.
