  • The purpose of this project is to reduce suicide prevalence among the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe (CSKT) population. 
  • We will accomplish this through continually improving care coordination between providers, divisions, and departments and expanding behavioral health services by using culturally appropriate, evidence-based models. 
  • This project sets out to educate, train, and support Tribal Health practitioners, Tribal youth and community members, and all those living on the Flathead Reservation to recognize, assess, screen, and care for those at-risk for suicide. 
  • We will work toward these goals in coordination with existing CSKT behavioral health programs and efforts with compatible goals and objectives. 
  • We will utilize trauma-informed suicide prevention, intervention and postvention approaches, bringing trainings to the community and schools, as well as implementing culturally-appropriate community connectedness activities, guided by Tribal elders and cultural knowledge keepers.
