Overview

Our mission is to provide comprehensive behavioral health services to native families. By establishing quality, culturally responsive behavioral treatment services, the Navajo Nation Division of Behavioral and Mental Health Services assures comprehensive alcohol and substance use prevention, education, treatment, and aftercare services through effective coordination, and development of behavioral and mental health infrastructure on the Navajo Nation.

Resources

Behavioral and mental health issues such as depression and suicide affect people of all ages and populations, but Native American and Alaskan Native populations can be at a higher risk. Complex, interrelated factors contribute to suicide among AI/AN people. Risk factors include mental health disorders, substance abuse, intergenerational trauma, and community-wide issues. Cooperation among Tribal, Federal, and other partners is imperative to create a safety net of interconnected programming – health, education, law enforcement, public health and well-being, economic development, and physical and behavioral health – to maximize effectiveness of services and to protect individuals against suicide risk. If you or someone you know needs immediate help, please reach out to one of the crisis and emergency lines to speak to someone:
