Purpose

The Administration for Native Americans (ANA) Youth Suicide Prevention Program was awarded to Little Wound School as a Healing Partnership with Oglala Lakota Nation Education Coalition (OLNEC) to address the issue of youth suicides.

The Center for Mind-Body Medicine model of self-care and small group support reduces post-traumatic stress disorder by as much as 80% and significantly decreases anger, depression, and hopelessness.
