TRIBAL YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION AND SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM
The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes would like to announce their Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention and Surveillance Program located at 104 E Kansas, in Anadarko, OK.
Our Purpose is to identify, refer, serve, and follow up with American Indian youth ages 10-24 years old that may be at-risk of suicide. These efforts will be through a collective community-based surveillance effort, which includes components of community outreach and awareness, coalition development, system wide training, screening, assessment, and care coordination. We will also work closely with the State of Oklahoma's grant to ensure non-native youth and adults residing in Caddo, Blaine, Canadian, Custer, Grady, and Washita Counties are referred to the appropriate program for resources.
Our mission is to increase awareness and understanding of suicide, while reducing stigma, engage the tribal community and partnering entities with coalition development, training, and outreach. This will ensure the effective assessment and treatment of youth at-risk through expert training. We will implement community based surveillance programming to identify at-risk youth and connect youth with Wichita Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention & Surveillance Program. We will ensure effective treatment and coordination of care through comprehensive case management and follow-up services.
Any questions or concerns regarding the Wichita Tribal Youth Suicide Prevention and Surveillance Program, please call Johnna Hurt, Program Director, or Kayla Bryant, Outreach Specialist at 405-247-8817.
