Alaska is one of the prettiest nature states in the United States. Each summer nearly 200,000 people venture out to see the last of the western frontier and enjoy the endless summer days. However, in the winter the never-ending winter nights and long open spaces can be deadly for those native to Alaska. Suicide is the leading cause of death for youth over the age of 15, and the sixth leading cause of death for all adults. One organization has set out to counter the effects of long cold winters by using the old healing art of listening. The Listening Post is an organization dedicated to listening Alaska’s most vulnerable without judging, advising, counseling, suggesting, or cheerleading. Here to tell us more about their organization is Debbie Sis and Avie Waters, the organizations founding volunteers.
