The Native American Suicide Prevention Organization (NASPO) aims to educate the youth, parents, schools and Native American tribes of the state of South Dakota about the prevalence of suicide among the Native American peoples, the warning signs indicating a person is at increased risk for attempting suicide, strategies for intervening with those at risk for attempting suicide and the availability of resources on and off the reservations, in order to reduce the risk of suicide in the state of South Dakota.
"Life is Sacred....So Live It"
We are a Suicide Prevention Movement. We go by WICONI WAKAN. Our goal is to get the youth involved in our communities and to share their stories, ideas and suggestions on how we as the next generation can come together and prevent another suicide. We all have a story to share, it’s time we be heard.
