SILVA, Debora Linhares da; PALHA JUNIOR, Álvaro Pinto  e  FEITOSA, Maria Zelfa Souza. Indigenous youth and suicide: transdisciplinary dialogues, fields of possibilities and overcoming vulnerabilities. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.46, pp. 556-569. ISSN 2175-1390.

From the experiences of acting in three public policies (education, health and social assistance) the dialogue was held between the au-thors and the author, whose common point is the indigenous young people and the professional practices of psychology. Young people become important agents, not only for a multifaceted analysis of the scenario found today in the country, where they appear in high rates of suicide and abusive use of alcohol and other drugs, but also because they are protagonists in transformation processes: trans-formatores. " Youths, vulnerabilities and projects of life passed through ethnographic research, theater of the oppressed and docu-mentary analysis. From the encounter, the questioning: how to offer a service that dialogues with the reality of these communities? And also paths: the need to respect the cultural specificities of these po-pulations; defense to guarantee their social rights through the stren-gthening of collective initiatives in each community and strategies of action that are empowering of autonomy and liberation.
