CNAY Presents at White House Event Focused on Mental Health

CNAY was invited to present and participate at a White House event on October 9 entitled, “Global Mental Health Day: Partnerships for Suicide Prevention.” The event drew more than 100 attendees, including clinicians, researchers, data scientists, tool developers, advocates, and policy makers who work to address mental health and suicide prevention.

CNAY joined a panel on data-driven suicide prevention where we highlighted our advocacy and engagement efforts with and for Native American youth. CNAY joined participants for break-out sessions and roundtable discussions focused on identifying new opportunities for strengthening mental health treatment and suicide prevention in Indian Country. We made strong connections with those in attendance, and will continue to share resources with Native youth and tribes. Additionally, CNAY will continue to serve as a resource for non-Native entities who want to engage in suicide prevention efforts that positively impact young Native Americans.
