Ho^ (Hello in the Sac and Fox Nation Language)
The New THRIVE Suicide Prevention Campaign‘s motto is “We are connected. We need you here“. This campaign has been designed with the help of Native community members across the U.S. and our goal is to ignite more hope in those thinking about suicide and to show them that there are people around them that can help and support them.
The WeRNative Website has free “We need you here” Suicide Prevention Campaign materials for Native Youth available. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also using social media to encourage actions that prevent suicide in their campaign of 1 Photo. 6 Words. #VetoViolence.
Background: THRIVE provides training and technical assistance on suicide prevention & media campaign development in the Pacific Northwest. If you would like to request materials, please, contact Celena McCray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important Dates: National Suicide Prevention Week is September 7-13, 2015
