Honoring Native Youth Suicide Survivors

The Cause: 
Suicide looks very different in Native communities than it does in the general population. Nationally, suicide tends to skew middle-aged (and white); but among Native Americans, 40 percent of those who die by suicide are between the ages of 15 and 24. And among young adults ages 18 to 24, Native American have higher rates of suicide than any other ethnicity, and higher than the general population.

A report, published by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, highlights what Native American health experts have long known: Suicide among Native youth is a crisis and one that is not receiving the attention it needs.

The Scent: 
Sage

Where your money goes:
100% of proceeds from this candle go towards an award-winning suicide & depression prevention program called, "You Are The Answer" a project of The SEQ HOPE Foundation where trained experts go into Native American communities and teach youth and adults life-skills necessary to assist themselves and their community in everyday living.  

Some communities cannot afford to have this training.  Your donation for this candle makes it possible for those under-served communities to get this training for their youth and Social/Human Service professionals.
