Hope for Life Day Toolkit

Pow Wow Drum

American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations are at higher risk for suicide than other ethnic and racial groups, with youth and young adults being particularly at risk. Studies have found that strengthening community connectedness can help promote resilience and coping skills.

In an effort to help support AI/AN communities as they prepare for National AI/AN Hope for Life Day on September 10, the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s (Action Alliance) AI/AN Task Force released an updated National AI/AN Hope for Life Day toolkit, adding a number of new tools and resources.

This toolkit will help community organizers take specific steps on September 10 to change the conversation about suicide, initiate action, and foster hope in their efforts to reduce suicide in AI/AN communities across the country.

Five Pillars to Elevate Wellbeing and Engagement at Work

Because we spend most of our waking hours at work, the office impacts employee wellbeing for better or worse. And because emotions are contagious, it's very easy for negativity to spread in a work environment. And once that happens, according to research published in the Harvard Business Review, we see how well-being suffers, productivity goes down by 30%, creativity plummets by 10 times, and employees are 40% less likely to be promoted that year. Tending to the well-being of employees empowers them and is good for business! What you will learn in this training, is about the hidden psychological traps that sabotage one's well-being, happiness, and success at work and how to support employees with simple tools to overcome negativity and flourish.
