About

The Honoring Life Program is part of the Southwest Hub for Youth Suicide Prevention which aims to grow and evaluate tribal-specific surveillance, linked case management, and brief interventions to reduce suicide risk and promote resilience among Native youth aged 10-24.

 

The Honoring Life program has three components:

1) Early identification of at-risk youth through community-based and health-system surveillance systems;

2) Case management and monitoring by caring community mental health workers (CMHWs) to assess imminent risk, understand risk, and promote linkages to care; and

3) Implement brief culturally informed interventions to reduce risk and promote connections to care.

 

The project builds on over 20 years of partnership focused on developing and evaluating suicide prevention programs with the White Mountain Apache Tribe and is being implemented in partnership with the White Mountain Apache Tribe, Navajo Nation, San Carlos Apache, Hualapai, and Cherokee Nation
