Culture Forward: A strengths and culture based tool to protect our Native youth from suicide

We are honored to share Culture Forward: A Strengths and Culture Based Tool to Protect Our Native Youth from Suicide. Casey Family Programs and the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health have partnered in listening to Native voices from across Indian Country and scanning Indigenous literature to gather tribally driven, evidence- and practice-based solutions to prevent youth suicide.

Culture Forward includes actionable steps that community leaders can take and links to resources containing a wealth of additional knowledge from across Indian Country. We hope this new resource will provide elders, youth and tribal leaders, health and human service providers and other change agents with carefully researched ideas and solutions to leverage unique strengths within tribal communities to protect youth against suicide. This is a step toward building a national coalition to advance a strengths-based Indigenous movement to promote tribal youth well-being.
