Opioid Overdoses Have Shaved 2.5 Months Off Americans’ Life Expectancy
Opioid overdoses reduced Americans’ life expectancy by 2.5 months between 2000 and 2015, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Indian Health Service has $600,000 available for grants to programs working to prevent methamphetamine use and suicide among American Indian and Native American youth.
Three two-year awards of $100,000 per year will be made under the program. Funds must be used to expand community-level access to effective methamphetamine and suicide-prevention programs through tribal, youth residential, transitional/discharge, and aftercare services.
Tribes, tribal organizations, tribal consortia, and nonprofit urban Native American programs may apply.
Application deadline is July 31. For more details, see the full grant announcement online.
