Suicide Prevention in Indigenous Communities – Making a Case for Broader
Interventions that Build on Injury Prevention Principles
The Injury Control Research Center for Suicide Prevention (ICRC-S) is having a webinar
about preventing youth suicide in Indigenous communities on Monday, April 14,
2014. The speakers of the webinar are Bridie Trainor, Director of Kawerak
Wellness, and Lisa Wexler Ph.D. MSW, associate professor in the Department of
Public Health at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Presenters will describe some of the challenges to
approaching suicide prevention one individual at a time, particularly for
Indigenous communities, and offer some alternative strategies that utilize a
broader approach to prevention. This presentation will identify some
evidence-based interventions that focus on broad-based injury prevention
principles, describe some promising approaches that build on community-level
support systems and service-system infrastructure.
