The RUL program is a Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention grantee funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). It is built upon SAMHSA’s efforts to reduce the rates of suicide and suicide attempts among American Indian youth ages 10-24 years old who reside in northern Arizona communities, primarily within Coconino County.
