Land Acknowledgement
 
JSPC acknowledges that Dzánti K'ihéeni (or Juneau) is the unceded ancestral homelands of the A’akw Kwáan. We thank the A’akw Kwáan and neighboring T'aaḵu Kwáan for their stewardship of this life-giving land. 

We also recognize the resilience of Indigenous Peoples of Alaska in the face of past and present trauma. To move forward, our work in Southeast AK requires a deep understanding of the harm, suffering, and pain caused by colonization, racism, and unjust actions. Our mission of promoting mental health is only complete once we honor the wisdom in different ways of knowing and commit ourselves to being a part of the healing and liberation process with Alaska's Indigenous Peoples, now and for future generations. 

Mission

The Juneau Suicide Prevention Coalition is committed to reducing the loss and suffering caused by suicide and suicidal behavior in Juneau. The Coalition offers information and education about issues relating to suicide, as well as support to families and community members who have lost loved ones to suicide. It is our hope that through our efforts we can lessen the incidence of suicide and the stigma associated with suicide and suicide loss.

We want to create a community where all individuals have a sense of belonging, connectedness to others, and value their lives.
