 Despite the strengths of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN)  families and communities, suicide remains a devastating and all too  frequent event. Complex, interrelated factors contribute to an increased  suicide risk among AI/AN people and include mental health disorders,  substance abuse, intergenerational trauma, and community-wide issues.
