Webinar: How the White Mountain Apache Tribe Addressed Youth Suicide
Thursday, May 23, 2013 | 12 p.m. Eastern Time
The burden of mental illness in the United States is among the highest of all diseases. Combined with the serious impact on physical health, mental health disorders can have harmful and long-lasting effects not only on those living with the disorders, but also on their loved ones and communities. This is a particularly important issue among American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Youth suicide rates in these communities are disproportionately higher than the national average.
Join the "Who's Leading the Leading Health Indicators?" webinar on May 23 as experts discuss the issue of mental illness. The 45-minute webinar will be led by Dr. Don Wright, HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary for Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. The webinar will feature the success of the White Mountain Apache tribe in using data-driven decisions and interventions to address youth suicide.
