Project SAFETY (Suicide Assessment Follow-up Education Texting for Youth and Young Adults) targets youth and young adults ages 10-24 across the state with the goal of reaching this broad population through implementation of screening in a variety of settings including middle and high schools, university health centers, hospital emergency department, primary care offices (prioritizing Kent and Sussex counties), juvenile detention centers and in the state's 24-7 mobile crisis service. Screening in primary care is a priority for Project SAFETY because data indicates that suicidal individuals often have contact with their primary care physician within a month of attempting suicide. In addition, implementing screening within primary care offices will reach a broad demographic (e.g. race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc.) and increase the likelihood of earlier identification of not only suicide risk but substance use and behavioral health problems as well. To broaden its outreach to youth/young adults, Project SAFETY will introduce a Suicide Texting Service which is expected to be user-friendly and is the chosen preferred way of communicating by youth and young adults. Between broad screening and increased outreach more youth in need of assessment and/or treatment will be identified especially in Kent and Sussex Counties. Project SAFETY also will include expanding the staffing of the state's 24-7 crisis service (for children) in Kent and Sussex counties to meet the anticipated increased demand once screening is initiated. Finally, Project SAFETY will provide the SPRC developed Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR) training for behavioral health professionals across the state to enhance the assessment and treatment services for suicidal youth.

Project Period: 2016/09/30 - 2019/09/29

Brandywine Counseling and Community Services (BCCS) is proposing to implement an enhancement of existing mental health, substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders outpatient treatment programs in Wilmington, Delaware by incorporating the use of technology assisted care (TAC) through the use of myStrength, an interactive mobile and web-based resource which acts as a clinician extender for many managing substance use disorders as well as mental health issues through a range of self-care applications and activities. This project will work as a clinical extension and serve 450 diverse individuals over three years by providing clients with an opportunity to engage in self-guided, treatment-on-demand services outside of their therapists' office. Due to the extensive needs of those with co-occurring disorders or mental health or substance us disorders, the overarching goal of the TCE-TAC program is to enhance participants' treatment success and experience, through the use of person-centered technology-assisted care, outside of a traditional therapy setting, as a way to engage participants in continuous treatment and/or treatment-on-demand which promotes overall well-being including decreases in alcohol and drug use, mental health symptoms, criminal activity, and increases in housing stability. Those participants who are experiencing a co-occurring disorder often need more treatment (more frequent, more intensive) than what is available to them; the use of myStrength will enhance services at BCCS and will assist the agency in overcoming that obstacle and promote recovery through empowering participants to take full responsibility for their treatment and recovery.
