Goal 1: Develop an infrastructure that involves the community in guiding all grant efforts, including planning, carrying out the plan, and evaluation.

Goal 1 will feature the creation of an Interagency Task Force of 14 tribal departments and agencies. Measurable objectives will include a tribal vision statement for the prevention and reduction of suicidal behavior, alcohol and substance abuse and the promotion of mental health in our tribal youth age 16-24, a strategic plan addressing the same, and the number agencies/departments that adopt new policies, protocols, and standards of care as a result of this project. Goal 2 will feature the creation of the Colville Suicide and Self Injury Surveillance System, replicating the successful White Mt. Apache SSISS. Measurements will include the creation of a data base, forms, and number of staff and departments trained in data entry; number of staff and departments trained to use the three tiered risk protocol, and case management system, home visit protocol and interview. Goal 3 will feature the training of 15 tribal members in the use of the Colorado State University Tri-Ethnic Center Community Readiness Assessment. Measurements will be number of tribal members trained, number of community members surveyed, number of interviews scored, readiness scores for each community, and recommendations from each community on next steps.

Project Period: 2012/08/01 - 2016/02/29

"Making Suicide everyone's business: A Native American Community Approach", builds on cultural strengths of balancing physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual lives. Our four community-wide effort incorporates community members (parents, youth), point of entry staff, and health care provider trainings, multi-media awareness campaign, and solidifies community networks. Suicide is a significant mental health problem among the members of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation (CCT), particularly the youth. I 2009, the youngest suicide attempt was 13 years old. In 2006, the suicide rate among members of the CCT was five times greater as compared to other Washington natives and 20 times greater than the national average. The Suicide Prevention coalition, established by the CCT in 2007, is responsible for the review and implementation of culturally appropriate prevention and intervention initiatives to address the growing problem of suicide. The efforts of the Coalition have revealed the interrelated problems of historical trauma, grief, and loss maintains a high level of suicide risk potential among underserved embers of the reservation. This proposal requests a universal approach to reducing the rate and risk of suicide and interrelated social problems by using inherent cultural assets in order to strengthen and balance our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual lives.
