The White Mountain Apache Suicide Surveillance and Prevention System was given the 2011 Bronze Psychiatric Services Achievement Award from the American Psychiatric Association. The award was presented in recognition of an effective and culturally respectful partnership among White Mountain Apache community mental health specialists, university medical and technical support, and tribal leadership to report, assess, and intervene in suicidal and self-injurious behaviors by members of an American Indian population at risk for suicide.
The Surveillance System field staff received the 2012 Indian Health Service National Behavioral Health Achievement Award. The award recognizes the many notable contributions that advance the behavioral health status of American Indians and Alaska Natives through partnerships and community mobilization. Our field team was honored for their outstanding service in the area of Community Mobilization in Suicide Prevention.
