Native Connections

Project Dates: 2014
Project Lead: Angela Larson
Client: Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC)

Tanana Chiefs Conference was awarded almost $200,000 to implement a suicide prevention program. The Native Connections project will serve the Yukon-Koyukuk Sub-region, which includes six Alaska Native tribal communities: Galena, Huslia, Kaltag, Koyukuk, Nulato, and Ruby. The Native Connections project will create community-generated, coordinated approaches to preventing and reducing suicidal behavior and increase emotional well-being among children and youth as well as their families and the Yukon-Koyukuk Sub-Region communities at large.
