FY 2005 OJJDP Tribal Youth Program Mental Health Initiative: OJJDP is offering $1 million in discretionary funding for eligible tribes to provide substance abuse and mental health prevention/intervention services to AI/AN youth who are involved in or at risk of becoming involved in tribal and/or State juvenile justice systems. The TYP Mental Health Initiative is part of the Mental Health and Community Safety Initiative for American Indian/Alaska Native Children, Youth and Families, a Federal initiative developed by the U. S. Departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, Education, and the Interior. Since FY 2000, this initiative has provided tribes with easy-to-access assistance to develop innovative strategies that address the mental health, behavior, substance abuse, and community safety needs of AI/AN youth and their families through a coordinated federal process. Statistics indicate that the age of first involvement with alcohol is lower, the frequency of drinking and the amount of alcohol consumed are higher, and the negative consequences of drinking are more common and severe for AI/AN youth. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics publication American Indians and Crime (Greenfeld and Smith, 1999), the number of arrests of AI/AN youth younger than 18 for alcohol-related violations is twice the national average. Thus, the TYP Mental Health Initiative was established to promote mental health and substance abuse (alcohol and drug abuse) services for AI/AN youth and to support juvenile delinquency prevention and intervention efforts by creating and implementing culturally sensitive mental health programs. Mental health funding will help tribes provide a range of youth support services and programs that address the mental health and related needs of AI/AN youth and their families in various community settings (e.g., school, violence prevention education programs, treatment programs, and the juvenile justice system). Interagency programs included in this Federal effort have been selected based on their combined potential to comprehensively address mental health, juvenile justice, and related issues. As part of this initiative, tribes are encouraged to promote coordination and collaboration among the local programs that serve young people in their communities. To date, OJJDP has awarded grants focusing on improving mental health services in the AI/AN juvenile justice systems to 28 tribes. Awards, not to exceed $225,000, will be made only to federally recognized tribes through cooperative agreements for a 3-year budget and project period.
