Spirit of Youth: Behavioral Health Expertise
This research is supported by Spirit of Youth and the State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services.
Spirit of Youth received a grant from the State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services, to implement a coalition-led effort using evidence-based strategies to address suicide, mental health, and/or substance abuse among Anchorage’s youth. Spirit of Youth has contracted with CBHRS to serve on the coalition and provide behavioral health expertise. CBHRS will assist with improving program activities, informing program evaluation conducted by SoY or contracted evaluators, and assisting SoY in fulfilling its agreements with the State of Alaska Division of Behavioral Health (DBH).
