TEEN SUICIDE PREVENTION
At KTSP, we provide evidence based suicide prevention and early intervention programs to individuals, communities, tribes and educational institutions. We provide QPR training free of charge to tribal and community members to help create a culture of safety for our youth. We teach Life Skills with an adaptation from American Indian Life Skills Development Curriculum by Dr. Teresa LaFromboise in five area schools. We host community awareness events that promote help seeking behaviors and work to reduce the stigma that often surrounds suicide. KTSP also stays actively involved with the Area Suicide Prevention Task Force.
We work to reduce youth suicides and suicide attempts in our area and surrounding communities. We do this by promoting help seeking behavior and creating community “gatekeepers” who help advance awareness and healing to those touched by suicide.
