Cody Ingle

Bloomberg Fellow

Cody Ingle is the Senior Research & Evaluation Specialist at Lost&Found, a Sioux Falls-based nonprofit committed to suicide prevention. His collaborative work with external partners utilizes data to tell the stories of how programs are impacting the communities they serve. In his role, Cody tracks emerging evidence and trends in mental health and suicide prevention to inform best practices at Lost&Found. Cody also serves as the principal investigator on the South Dakota Queer Affirmative Care Initiative, an innovative project designed to improve the overall health and mental health care experiences of queer people in South Dakota and improve how systems interact with queer people in the state. A passion for driving positive change and equitable solutions directs his approach to research and evaluation. 

Lost&Found’s mission is to “deliver comprehensive, data-driven, and resilience-focused suicide prevention and postvention programs and services for youth and young adults (ages 10-34) and their support networks.” The organization operates across four key areas: Student programs, including an evidence-based Peer2Peer Mentoring program and student chapters; research and evaluation services, including external evaluations, innovative research, and a “resilience index” that assesses organizations’ systematic approach to suicide; education and advocacy, offering evidence-based educational resources and informing policy work surrounding mental health; and postvention services, which impacts individual survivors of suicide loss, policy change within structures, and educational materials for communities. Through these initiatives, Lost&Found fosters peer support, advances research, raises awareness, and provides crucial support for those affected by suicide.
