Webinar: Preventing Suicidal Behavior in American Indian and Alaska Native communities: A health equity issue

Webinar: Preventing Suicidal Behavior in American Indian and Alaska Native communities: A health equity issue

Suicide is a leading cause of death in the U.S. and suicide rates have increased more than 30 percent since 2000. Among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI and AN) communities, suicide rates are even higher than among the general population, and they are highest among youth and young adults, ages 15–34. Focusing on subgroups at risk, including youth among AI and AN communities, and implementing evidence-based prevention strategies is a key approach to reducing suicidal behaviors and may help reduce this health inequity.

Positive Community Norms Institute

Positive Community Norms Institute

What is the Positive Community Norms approach?

The Positive Community Norms (PCN) approach to improving community health is a transformational model founded upon The Science of the Positive (SOTP). The Seven Step Montana Model for Positive Community Norms Communication (Linkenbach 1998, 2003) uses the Core Principles of the Science of the Positive to grow positive norms through leadership development, communications strategies, integration of prevention resources, and structured reflection. PCN cultivates cultural transformation by working on multiple community levels and factors at once. This framework has shown itself to be extremely effective in creating meaningful social change around health and safety issues including traffic safety, underage drinking, binge drinking, child maltreatment, and many others. (An Introduction to Positive Community Norms: a guide to PCN leadership, communication, integration, and reflection, Dr. Jeffrey D. Linkenbach, 2017).

Webinar: Integrating suicide prevention into the SBIRT model

Webinar: Integrating suicide prevention into the SBIRT model

This summer - in the wake of two celebrity suicides and the release of the CDC report highlighting an alarming rise in the US suicide rate - the public's attention was drawn to the significant public health problem of suicide. Because alcohol and drug use greatly increase suicide risk, it is critical to integrate suicide prevention into substance use early intervention and treatment. This webinar describes suicide as a public health problem and explains how suicide screening and intervention can be integrated into the SBIRT model.

 

As a result of participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe suicide as a public health problem;
  • Identify a suicide screening tool and brief intervention; and
  • Explain how suicide prevention can be integrated into the SBIRT model.

Webinar: Fostering thriving cities: City and community partnerships for early childhood success

Webinar: Fostering thriving cities: City and community partnerships for early childhood success

An aligned and equitable system of early care and education is critical for ensuring that all children grow up healthy and thriving.  Historically, a patchwork quilt of programs that serve young children and their families have developed independently from each other and the resulting fragmentation frequently impedes and limits their effectiveness. Aligning early care and education systems for young children can take a variety of forms and functions.  What is essential is that city leaders and their community partners come together collaboratively to determine what early childhood alignment may look like in their community and how to achieve it.

In this webinar hosted by the Networks of Opportunity for Child Wellbeing, the National League of Cities will share best practices and key elements from communities across the country on how community partners, elected officials and families came to partner for early childhood success.

Featured speakers include:

  • Moderator: Ronda Alexander, Director of Operations, Vital Village Network at Boston Medical Center
  • Nancy Lim, Program Manager, Early Childhood Success, National League of Cities
  • Tonja Rucker, Program Director, Early Childhood Success, National League of Cities

QPR Gatekeeper training

QPR Gatekeeper training

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

Learn How to:

  • Recognize someone in crisis

  • Review the risk of suicide

  • Reach out and offer support

  • Apply a suicide intervention model

  • Link people with community resources
