Mission: Reduce suicide rates among American Indians and Alaska Natives living in the Pacific Northwest by increasing tribal capacity to prevent suicide and by improving regional collaborations.
1. Increase knowledge and awareness about suicide among Tribal community members, and in doing so, take steps to address the silence and fear that exists in many of our communities preventing use of available prevention and treatment services.
2. Improve intertribal and interagency communication about suicide prevention and treatment in order to share and maximize limited resources, by working collaboratively on this five-year Action Plan.
3. Increase the capacity of Tribal health programs to track, prevent, and treat suicide.
4. Improve understanding among Tribal staff, Tribal decision-makers, State Health Departments, and potential funding organizations about suicide issues affecting NW Tribes.
MSPI Suicide Prevention Project serves the 43 federally recognized tribes in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
Funding: Project activities are funded by the Methamphetamine & Suicide Prevention Initiative (MSPI) which was awarded by the Indian Health Service (IHS), Division of Behavioral Health in June 2009.
