Behavioral and Community Health Programs

Behavioral and Community Health Programs

The Behavioral Health Programs focus on reducing behaviors that lead to adverse outcomes through education, outreach, and support. Our vision is to integrate behavioral health within the structure of health services, foster collaborative support between tribes for health and wellness that is holistic, and meet the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of tribal communities, families, and individuals.

Our programs promote the importance of involving tribal communities, youth leadership, spiritual leaders, cultural leaders, parents/guardians, and elders in all levels of research, planning, and service delivery to create and/or support culturally-based community prevention, intervention, and postvention.

As a team, we hope to provide quality services to tribes in the Great Plains region by helping identify and assess tribal health and wellness needs in regard to behavioral health. This in turn will help us enhance working relationships with tribal health, behavioral health, and substance abuse programs and provide training, technical assistance, and resources to increase tribal behavioral health and substance abuse prevention capacity.
