CONNECTED: A Youth Mental Health Initiative

CONNECTED: A Youth Mental Health Initiative

Centers:

CONNECTED is a two-year initiative that intends to reduce anxiety, depression and suicide among young people aged 10 to 24 in underserved communities, and empowers youth to engage in meaningful change. With support from a private venture philanthropist, and in partnership with Change Matrix, Relias, Watauga Consulting and Youth MOVE National, the National Council for Behavioral Health launched this initiative to increase access to and engagement in quality, appropriate care for youth in underserved communities who experience barriers to mental health supports. Recognizing that efforts driven by and for those they intend to serve are most effective, CONNECTED engages young people with lived experience. Five organizations are piloting approaches and connecting young people in their communities to new types of mental health supports. A comprehensive evaluation, led by MPHI, will illuminate the driving factors that contribute to successful implementation of effective approaches. Lessons learned and resources will be shared nationally in support of empowering communities to enact positive change.

Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health (MOASH)

Centers:

MPHI has provided evaluation services to MOASH since 2014. MOASH programs evaluated by MPHI focus on adolescents and young adults, particularly LGBTQ+ youth.  MPHI is currently working on three projects with MOASH: Youth Education Access on HIV (YEAH!), Sexual Violence Prevention, and the Step Toward Equity Program (STEP) 2.0. The YEAH! Project aims to prevent HIV among Detroit youth by eliminating barriers in access to information technology and establishing collaborations that are well positioned to support this work in the long-term. As a subgrantee of Michigan’s Sexual Violence Prevention program, MOASH aims to change the culture and climate around consent and sexual violence through statewide messaging campaigns, a youth advisory council, and changing practices in school environments. STEP 2.0 provides comprehensive sexual health education that also addresses a need for an increased amount and depth of content on sexual and gender-based violence prevention. MPHI provides support through evaluation consultation and advisement. MPHI also assists MOASH by developing surveys and other instruments and creating summary evaluation reports.
