Starting November 1st, a virtual four-part dialogue series will commence that addresses multiple topics that impact employment for American Indians and Alaska Natives.

The first dialogue will focus on employment opportunities for American Indians and Alaska Natives individuals with mental health conditions. This virtual dialogue offers perspectives from Native people who have navigated mental health conditions and/or substance abuse disorders while also seeking employment. Three American Indian/Alaska Natives will share their journey and strategies that they found beneficial along their pathway to employment. Their experiences will be combined with evidence-based strategies that can promote employment for Native individuals.
