Methamphetamine and Suicide Prevention Initiative (MSPI)
The Methamphetamine and Suicide Prevention Initiative is a federally-funded program established to prevent suicide and methamphetamine use in Indian Country. MSPI funds 118 IHS, Tribal, and Urban community-based programs across the United States. On behalf of the Indian Health Service Division of Behavioral Health, NCUIH’s Technical Assistance and Research Center provides technical assistance and support to the 10 Urban MSPI grantees.
Urban MSPI programs use practice-based evidence, evidence-based practices, and culturally-based activities to decrease risk factors and strengthen protective factors associated with suicide and substance abuse prevention.
