The Methamphetamine and Suicide Prevention Initiative (MSPI) is a national pilot demonstration project focused on addressing two of the most pressing public health concerns in American Indian and Alaska Native communities -- methamphetamine use and suicide. The MSPI, funded by the Indian Health Service, supports Federal, Tribal, and urban programs that are developing innovative and promising approaches to reduce the methamphetamine and suicide crisis in Indian Country. Some of these programs have generously agreed to share their stories, so that other communities can learn about and benefit from the work being done by the MSPI programs.
