Abstract: “Developed through the Tribal Training and Technical Assistance Center of SAMHSA, the Community Readiness Manual was revised in 2014 to focus on the issue of suicide prevention. The Tribal TTA center aims to provide training to the participating tribal communities on the use and application of this assessment tool to “help build community capacity to address suicide prevention, and to develop culturally appropriate and community-specific prevention strategies based on their respective readiness scores.”
