HeartCrossers is our culturally-relevant suicide prevention program. Suicide, slow suicide (chemical abuse and dependency), depression, bullying and hopelessness are major problems on and off the reservations in the Indigenous populations.
HeartCrossers is an encounter-based program that encourages people to take the HeartCrossers Pact for Life - a promise that does the opposite of a suicide pact. It binds people together in an accountability and partnership fashion for pursuing life and hope, overcoming obstacles and reaching out to Creator and to others for strength and endurance. HeartCrossers partners with local resources to break down negative stereotypes about seeking help from the mental health community during stressful instances and times of need.
