The purpose of the Circles of Care program is to provide tribal and urban Indian communities with tools and resources to design systems of care to support mental health for their children, youth, and families in American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. Circles of Care grants will allow the building of infrastructure to increase the capacity and effectiveness of behavioral health systems serving AI/AN communities. As a result of these infrastructure improvements, Circles of Care grants will reduce the gap between the need for behavioral health services and the availability of services in AI/AN communities. Stakeholders, leaders and community members will formulate methods to reduce stigma, improve relationships between provider groups, address the limited service availability and increase cultural competence in the overall system: tribal, federal, and state. This program includes resources for infrastructure development and integrated service models within tribal colleges and universities (TCU) settings. Circles of Care grantees must: 1. Develop systems of care models that are designed by American Indian/Alaska Native community members, in partnership with program and evaluation staff, to transform their behavioral health care systems. 2. Engage their community members in assessing service system needs, gaps, potential resources, and plan infrastructure development strategies that meet those needs. 3. Place special emphasis on co-occurring issues of mental health and substance abuse, suicide and other problems endemic to AI/AN communities. 4. Increase the participation of families, tribal leaders, and spiritual advisors in planning and developing service systems and treatment options based on the values and principles of the AI/AN community served by the project. 5. Evaluate the feasibility of the proposed community service system, in terms of potential resources. 6. Support achieving the Healthy People 2010 goals relevant to AI/AN children and youth: reduce the rate of suicide attempts by adolescents; increase the proportion of children and youth with behavioral health problems who receive treatment.
