Publication Date: Nov 01, 2021

Editors' Note: This story ran in our November newsletter, published Nov. 1.

 

Our new series Healing Roots: Considerations for Mental Health Accessibility and Delivery of Services Across Tribal Communities begins 10-11:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 5.
 

In this series, participants will learn about the gaps in services for tribal communities across settings. We will look at college mental health needs on tribal campuses, provide information on the prevention, intervention, and postvention after a suicide on the reservation, examine our own limitations with the training we received when it comes to providing culturally focused and competent care, and discuss community inclusion while implementing evidence-based practices. Attendees of each webinar will receive a toolkit with a number of resources to implement at your own unique setting.
