The Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships For Success (SPF PFS) Grant Summary

In September 2015, Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council (GLITC) was awarded a five-year Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships For Success (SPF PFS) Grant.  The SPF PFS Grant uses the premise that “Culture is Prevention” and has two priorities: preventing underage drinking among individuals 12 to 20 years old, and preventing prescription drug misuse and abuse among individuals 12 to 25 years old.  GLITC is collaborating with four Tribes to complete the SPF PFS Grant.  The Tribes include: Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, and Menominee Indian Tribe.  In order to meet the data collection and evaluation requirements of the SPF PFS Grant, GLITC is collaborating with Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Epidemiology Center (GLITEC) and BEAR Consulting, LLC.

Goals:
  • Reduce underage drinking (UAD) in 12-20 year olds
  • Reduce prescription (Rx) drug misuse and abuse in 12-25 year olds
  • Promote emotional health and wellness in order to prevent or delay the onset of/complications from substance abuse and mental illness while identifying and responding to emerging behavioral health issues

Objectives:
  • By the end of the grant period, UAD will be reduced by 5% of baseline and the perception of perceived harm/risk related to UAD will be increased by 5%
  • By the end of the grant period, Rx drug abuse will be reduced by 5% of baseline and the perception of perceived harm/risk related to Rx drug abuse will be increased by 5%. Both UAD and Rx drug abuse objectives will be determined using a past 30 day use measure.
  • Promotion of emotional health/wellness will be increased by 10% from baseline by measuring key stakeholders’ knowledge of processes to guide prevention efforts through use of the Inter-Tribal Strategic Prevention Plan which uses the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) along with the Traditional Medicine Wheel and 4 Directions as its basis.
