Heart of the Land | Suicide Prevention PSA

Suicide greatly impacts young men living in Alaska. However, connections to their ancestors and traditions can help guide them to overcome their pain, silence, the stigma and to seek help.
Heart of the Land, produced in coordination with an Alaskan production company, includes location shooting from the Alaskan cities of Juneau, Kotzebue, and Anchorage. In addition, representation in the video includes the Inupiaq, Tlingit, Tshimshian, Unangan, Athabascan, Aleut and Yupik Tribes. SAMHSA is grateful for the participation of all who made this video possible.
