My dissertation is titled “An Exploratory Mixed Methods Study of the Methamphetamine and Suicide Prevention Initiative (MSPI), 2009-2015” will assess the implementation and evaluation of the MSPI from 2009-2015 to better understand the MSPI as a mechanism to improve health outcomes across the Indian Health System. Chapter two uses quantitative methods to describe the state of suicide; chapter three uses quantitative methods to describe the state of methamphetamine use; and, chapter four uses qualitative methods to describe implementation and evaluation characteristics of high capacity projects. From 2009-2015, the MSPI served as a valuable program in American Indian and Alaska Native communities and successfully addressed suicide and methamphetamine use using community based approaches and local evaluation.
