Information

NATIVE TEENS - You Are Not Alone Network :Yanan:

You are “our children”. We are concerned “family, and community” members who care about you.

Many of you are choosing to take your lives and think we don’t care.

We do care and have launched a website to let you know that we value you, we will listen to you, and will provide you with resources for you to get help, as well as give you a voice.

Many Native American young people today feel as though “nobody cares”, and at that moment may choose to end their own life. The purpose of the “You Are Not Alone Network” is to intervene, to reach out and say, “we do care!”, and invite them into a circle of family, friends, and community. Our intent is to involve the youth in expressing themselves in “the arts”, to get their message out,
“You Are Not Alone”!

 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE is a youth led suicide prevention training and outreach program.
Our goal is to empower youth to appropriately care for and educate each other about suicide prevention. YANA’s focus is on early intervention and creating hope through positive action.

Many people think that openly talking about suicide raises the risk. 
The fact is: Asking someone directly usually, lowers their anxiety, opens up lines of communication, and also lowers the risk of an impulsive act.

If a youth tells a friend they are thinking about suicide, most often that friend will not seek the help of an adult.  
YANA is working on a peer-to-peer level to empower youth to involve adults and teach the resources that can bring hope to those who are suffering.

You don’t have to be an expert to help prevent suicide.  
Anyone can learn the signs and make a difference by reaching out to those in need at the earliest possible time and accessing appropriate support.

Our message is simple:
“YOU ARE NOT ALONE!”
