Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is accepting applications for a total of up to $7.9 million in grants for State/Tribal-Sponsored Youth Suicide Prevention grants for up to the next three years. This program supports states and tribes in developing and implementing statewide or tribal youth suicide prevention and early intervention strategies grounded in public/private sector collaboration. The collaborations can involve youth-serving institutions and agencies including schools, educational institutions; juvenile justice systems; foster care systems; substance abuse treatment and mental health programs; families and youth and other interested groups.
