Deaths From Drug Overdoses, Alcohol and Suicide Leveled Off in 2018
The rate of deaths from drug overdoses, alcohol and suicide—so-called “deaths of despair”—were about the same in 2018 compared with the year before, a new study finds.
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.
