Suicide Prevention

EVERYONE can play a role in suicide prevention.  Some warning signs may help you determine if a loved one is at risk for suicide.

Prevention Awareness Month Activities

September 2020

Tell Your Heart Story

September is recognized as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and this year COVID-19 has put undue strain and anxiety on our people, families and communities across Alaska. Please join us through the month of September to honor Suicide Prevention Awareness with weekly activities aimed to normalize conversations about suicide.

Please carefully read through the activity and then fill out the survey. Each week, there will be a random drawing among survey completions for a $50 gift card; a grand prize drawing will be randomly drawn at the end of the five weeks.

For participant safety, we ask that all participants be 15 years of age or older.

If you are having suicidal thoughts or are in need of support, please contact the Careline at 1-877-266-4357 (HELP) for support and assistance from a trained counselor. If you or a loved one are in immediate danger, call 911 or your local Village Safety Police Officer.

About P.C. Cares

Culturally Relevant – Evidence Based Research on Suicide Prevention

Promoting Community Conversations About Research to End Suicide (PC CARES) is a community health intervention designed, supported, and implemented by the remote communities of Northwest Alaska. PC CARES builds communities of practice among local and regional service providers, community members, friends, and families to spark multilevel and sustained efforts for suicide prevention. In this model, monthly learning circles supported by local facilitators foster personal and collective learning about suicide prevention in order to spur practical action on multiple levels to prevent suicide and promote health.
