Native American Heritage Month: We R Native
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, the Mountain Plains would like to highlight We R Native
We R Native is a multimedia health resource for Native teens and young adults. The service includes an interactive website, a text messaging service, and social media. We R Native addresses the social, structural, and environmental stressors that influence adolescent health; with particular focus given to the prevention of suicide, bullying, sexually transmitted diseases, teen pregnancy, and drug and alcohol use.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: We R Native is supported, in part, with funds from the Indian Health Service and the Minority AIDS Initiative Fund, and by a GLS suicide prevention grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
