The Greene County Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) Implementation Project will saturate the community of Greene County, Missouri with YMHFA First Aiders, who will in turn serve the population of youth ages 12-18. There will be three groups of activities, including Infrastructure Development, Training and Technical Assistance, and Community Outreach and Education. Objectives include increasing the mental health literacy of adults who interact with adolescents, conducting outreach and engagement strategies with adolescents and their families or caregivers to increase awareness of and promote positive behavioral health, linking adolescents with behavioral health issues to appropriate assistance and services, and increasing the number of collaborative partnerships with relevant youth-serving community agencies and programs. This project will serve at least 25 new YMHFA Facilitators who will train 2,700 YMHFA First Aiders throughout the three year project, with 600 First Aiders in Year One, 1,000 First Aiders in Year Two and 1,100 First Aiders in Year Three. The success of this project will be determined by the successful training of YMHFA Facilitators, the training of 2,700 YHMFA First Aiders, and the number of youth who receive the help needed through referral to resources and services by YMHFA Facilitators and First Aiders.

System of Care Community Enhancement for Early Signs and Symptoms (SOC-CESS) is a widespread expansion of an enhanced System of Care (SOC) that will improve outcomes for youth, ages 9-17, and their families affected by, or at risk of, early onset psychosis. As a result, local SOC communities will provide specialized surveillance, early detection, research-based treatment, family driven/youth guided participation at all levels within a community network. SOC-CESS will: 1) Improve the health and psychosocial functioning of youth who are at risk of early onset psychosis and their families, 2) Embed family and youth leadership within local and state agencies, and 3) Expand an enhanced SOC specifically as it relates to early identification and treatment for youth at risk of or experiencing early onset psychosis and their families. It is estimated that on an annual basis, SOC-CESS will serve between 150 to 200 youth who are experiencing an identified as experiencing First Episode of Psychosis, ages 9- 7. SOC-CESS could serve as many as 500 youth who are affected by or at risk of early onset of psychosis per year, which is 2,000 youth over the course of four years.

The Show Me Zero Youth Suicide Initiative aims to reduce youth suicide through an integrated systems-level approach, which includes establishing a continuity of care model for youth at risk of suicide and promoting the adoption of suicide prevention as a core priority of youth-serving institutions, such as hospitals and schools. Through collaboration with these organizations, this initiative will effectively identify youth ages 10-24 who are at risk for suicide and provide immediate linkage to intensive services and follow-up care. An innovative data-driven surveillance system will document whether services reduce suicidal behaviors. Services will be focused on a five-county region in western Missouri, centered on Jackson County, which includes Kansas City, as well as surrounding counties with more rural areas. The region has higher rates of youth suicide, suicidal ideation, and intentional self-injury than Missouri averages. A multi-pronged approach will promote and support sustainable systems level change while employing strategies from the 2012 National Strategy for Suicide Prevention that focus on treatment and support services. The initiative will place special emphasis on those at higher risk for suicide, including youth who have previously attempted suicide, 18-24 year old youth, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The overall aim of the Show Me Zero Youth Suicide Initiative is to reduce suicides and suicide attempts by accomplishing three major goals: 1) Improve the system of care for suicidal youth who use hospital emergency departments, in-patient psychiatric facilities, and/or crisis hotlines. 2) Improve the capacity of school systems to identify, respond, and refer youth at risk of suicide. 3) Strengthen overall prevention efforts for at-risk youth populations in other settings. This initiative will provide direct services to 2,000 individuals in year one and increase annually, serving 15,000 over the grant period, with

Through the Missouri Project LAUNCH, the Missouri Department of Mental Health (MODMH), in partnership with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (MODHSS), other state agency and community partners, and families, will come together in a comprehensive system approach to promote the healthy development of the state's youngest citizens. The project's purpose is to create a coordinated system to support children, age 0-8 to thrive in safe, supportive environments and enter school ready to learn and able to succeed. Two inner city areas of St. Louis City (ZIP Codes 63106 and 63107) have been selected as a local pilot to capitalize on the city's existing strong focus on the young child and rich cultural diversity. The population of focus is children 0-8 and pregnant women living and/or receiving services in the selected ZIP Codes. Special subpopulations with access or service use disparities include: military families and children of parents with mental illness, substance abuse or who are incarcerated. It is estimated that 1,335 young children and their families will be served throughout the life of the project with 55 served in year one, 160 in year two, 320 in year three and 400 annually in years four and five. The applicant, the MODMH, as the state mental health authority, will provide leadership for the project. The Missouri Institute of Mental Health (MIMH) will oversee the evaluation efforts.

The Veteran's Council will advise on matters of military culture and outreach. The NAMI On Campus groups will assist in engaging young adults and cultivating peer leaders. NAMI MO will ensure a diverse group of consumers have the opportunity to participate in the trainings which will make NAMI MO more effective as a statewide consumer network. Finally, NAMI MO will prepare consumers to play a central role in systems transformation by providing leadership and self-advocacy training and one-on-one mentoring, with targeted recruitment of MO Recovery Network members, veterans, young adults and rural consumers and consumers who are members of racial, ethnic and LGBT minority groups. Trainees with interest will be afforded opportunities and given support to serve on statewide and local system transformation coalitions, committees, councils, and workgroups.

Project Period: 2015/09/30 - 2019/09/29

Our proposal, Integrating Care for Health & Wellness at Places for People, will expand our current services by creating PBHCI Treatment Teams to integrate primary health care into our behavioral care services. Our purpose is to address the total health care needs of people with severe mental illness and enhance consumers' experience of care, helping them live healthier, longer lives. We further aim to increase efficiency and reduce the overall cost of health care. We will enroll 400 unduplicated persons into health and wellness services, integrating these services into our community support and ACT treatment teams to form PBHIC Treatment Teams with the addition of new health care professionals. Under this proposal, we will hire an MD Primary Health Care Consultant to consult with service teams; two LPN integrated Health Care Specialists to provide direct health interventions; and both a Peer wellness Coach and a Fitness/ Nutrition Specialist to provide individual and group counseling. We will re-assign 1.3 Nurse Care Managers from our Health Care Home to our PBHCI teams offering nursing care all service teams to focus on integrated health. PBHCI participants will be adults diagnosed with severe mental illness, many with co-occurring disorders, who receive intensive behavioral health services provided through a team approach. Places for People's clients have the most complex and challenging behavioral health needs and are unlikely to voluntarily seek health care services without significant support. We will serve 200 people Year 1; 267 Year 2; 334 Year 3 and 400 Year 4. Participants will likely be 57% male, 42.5% female, .5% transgender; 55.7% black American, 35.7% white American, 2.1% Asian, .7% non-white Hispanic, 8% refugees (multiple ethnicities/nationalities); 2.6% < 18 years, 93% between 18-64 years, 3% over 65 or older. 5% will be veteran.
