Native Cry – Suicide Prevention Day

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 10th, 2014 Last Updated on: September 10th, 2014




With World Suicide Prevention Day coming up on September 10, 2014, I thought it would be a good time to highlight one of the organizations out there trying to help educate and give hope to Native Americans.



Native Cry Outreach Alliance is an organization made up of dedicated Native, as well as Non-Native, Americans to support a single and important cause. Native Cry is dedicated to suicide prevention awareness, helping survivors of suicide, and people who suffer a loss from suicide within the Native American community as well as other indigenous peoples around the world.

Don't be afraid to ask for help. If you need someone to talk to please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Indian Health Services also has a link on their website to suicide prevention programs and how you might talk to someone if you're afraid they're in trouble.
