This special issue focuses on one of the most pressing concerns today in Indian and Native communities: adolescent suicide. It presents a new and diverse set of reports that add to our insights concerning risks, associated socioeconomic and health factors, and patterns of completed and attempted suicides.  The chapters emphasize prevention strategies, provide examples of public health approaches on individual reservations and throughout the Indian Health Service, and analyze patterns of suicide and suicide attempts from the points of view of health providers, administrators, researchers, and program developers.
