November is Native American Heritage Month

Untitled design (20)

This month, KidsFirst celebrates Native American Heritage Month. We honor the significant contributions Native Americans made to establish and grow the United States of America.

KidsFirst would like to spread awareness of the available mental health resources for the Native American and Indigenous community. Positive mental health helps families thrive and with roughly 4.2 million Americans identifying as having Native American or Alaska Native heritage, it’s important to spread awareness of this topic.

Below are resources to support the Native American and Indigenous community:

  • One Sky Center is the American Indian/Alaska Native National Resource Center for Health, Education, and Research. Their mission is to improve prevention and treatment of mental health and substance use problems and services among Native people.
  • The website WeRNative offers a comprehensive health resource for Native youth by Native youth, promoting holistic health and positive growth in local communities the country at-large.
  • StrongHearts Native Helpline (1-844-762-8483) is a confidential and anonymous culturally-appropriate domestic violence and dating violence helpline for Native Americans, available every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. CT.
  • Sierra Native Alliance is our local community partner. Their mission is to empower Native youth and families in the Sierra Nevada Foothills through family education, cultural resources and environmental education.
