The Modoc Nation was awarded funding through SAMHSA to promote suicide awareness and prevention in Ottawa County. This is a 5-year project that includes providing direct mental health services to area youth, assessing community agencies’ readiness to serve individuals who are suicidal or at-risk of suicide, and professional development/training to youth and family-serving professionals and organizations.
