Nationally and across Alaska our communities have been devastated by the impacts of COVID-19. During the annual grantee meeting we will be hosting state and national speakers talk with us about moving forward with community coalition work after a major upheaval, such as a pandemic.
Because of your work, our Alaskan communities are so very lucky to have the coalitions that prioritize and promote health, wellness and connections between community members. We will also discuss the role of historical trauma on our communities and prevention efforts today. DBH will also spend some time focusing on suicide prevention, in response to the increased risk of suicide in Alaska as a result of the pandemic.
