Join us For AFSP’s Discussion of “Preventing Suicide in Native American Communities”
Native and Indigenous Peoples face specific challenges when it comes to mental health and suicide prevention. Alarmingly, American Indian and Alaska Native individuals die by suicide at a disproportionately high rate compared to other racial/ethnic groups in the United States. On April 27, 2023, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Elevating Voices for Long-Lasting Change town hall series will present “Preventing Suicide in Native American Communities.” This event features three experts on mental health and suicide prevention in Native American communities discussing this critical issue. One of the experts is Andrea Wiglesworth, a member of the Seneca-Cayuga Nation (Deer Clan) and a fourth-year graduate student in the Clinical Science and Psychopathology Research PhD program. We urge you to attend this session. A recording may be available for those who cannot attend the live event.
Andrea Wiglesworth, graduate student in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota.
