Walking with Tribal Youth on Their Sacred Journey–Understanding How to Support Tribal Youth
June 12 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In recognition of Pride Month, the CoE LGBTQ+ BHE and the National American Indian and Alaska Native MHTTC will be hosting a special four-part webinar series on supporting Native LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit youth! Join us every week in June to learn about the historical context of colonization that impacts Native youth, discover what tools and resources are available, gain strategies for supporting youth and their families, and hear from a lived experience panel.
Each session will begin and end with a breathing exercise and acknowledgment of attendees tending to their own spirit. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four sessions to embark upon this journey of learning together.
This webinar is Part 2 of a 4-Part Pride Month series: Walking with Tribal Youth on Their Sacred Journey. This session will focus on the needs of Native LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit youth. Risk factors and rates of homelessness, violence against the community, and suicide rates will be discussed. Legislation will also be addressed and how it is impacting the community; examples of harmful as well as supportive legislation will be shared. Best practices for supporting young people will be shared, including the importance of listening to young people about their identities, and how to support young people experiencing mental health challenges. The session will begin and end with a breathing exercise and acknowledgment of attendees tending to their own spirit. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four sessions to embark upon this journey of learning together.
