The Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center (YTHC) proposes to expand the current fragmented system of care to create culturally-responsive trauma- informed practices across their child-serving systems to address the complex needs of tribal children birth through 21 with significant trauma issues. The project will enroll 50 participants in year one with a minimum of 400 served throughout the grant period.
The YTHC is the fully accredited ambulatory care facility for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR). The Yellowhawk System of Care Expansion Project is a four year initiative designed to implement a trauma-informed behavioral health system for children with emotional disturbances from birth to age 21 and their families. Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center, which is the tribe's fully accredited medical facility, currently serves 1,170 Native American youth, many of whom suffer from historical trauma and PTSD that is not being effectively addressed by the existing system of care. The long term goal of the project is to ensure that tribal youth affected by trauma related mental illnesses receive the services they need to overcome these experiences. On a short term basis the CTUIR are committed to establishing a sustainable infrastructure that provides all needed mental health and recovery support services for children with serious emotional disturbances.

The Jefferson County Prevention Task Force is a strong community coalition that serves the culturally diverse areas of Madras, Culver, Metolius and the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Jefferson County, Oregon.
Jefferson County is a highly diverse, rural area with a population of approximately 22,865 people, with 27% being under the age of 18 (6,097 are children ages 0 to 17) (Children First for Oregon 2011). Our County is home to the largest Native American reservation in the state of Oregon, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
Our coalition's recent community needs assessment in July of 2012 determined our focus areas to be: Underage Drinking, Marijuana, Prescription Drugs, and Bullying. The Jefferson County Prevention Task Force is focused on strengthening its community collaboration with the following environmental strategies:
--Build capacity of the Youth Prevention Task Force (YPTF) at 509J and Culver School Districts in order to empower youth leaders in planning and implementing environmental strategies targeted for underage drinking prevention projects;
--Reduce barriers and increase access for ID Checking/Liquor Law Classes and the OLCC Responsible Vendor program for clerks, businesses and liquor license vendors;
--Increase compliance through enhancement of Minor Decoy Compliance Operations utilizing the Youth Prevention Task Force under the supervision of Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) and/or local law enforcement; and
--Enhance the Jefferson County Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) Protocol through Town Hall educational meetings and consistent enforcement of underage drinking. Expand ATOD Protocol across county lines in partnership with Crook and Deschutes Counties.
The Clackamas County Prevention Coalition (CCPC) will strategically integrate a community approach to reducing underage drinking in the communities of Sandy, Canby, North Clackamas School District and Clackamas Community College in Clackamas County. They will address the Surgeon General's call to action by addressing misperceived community norms about underage drinking. The CCPC has identified these communities as having readiness to engage in the Social Norms project. The Social Norms campaign will be a five step process. 1) Collect and analyze baseline data; 2) Social Norms implementation in schools and communities; 3) Create youth lead Social Norms prevention planning teams; 4) Implementing media campaigns to schools and community and 5) Evaluation. The project will strengthen collaboration among the community by engaging stakeholders in prevention strategies that address and support no use messages as well as change perception of parents and government officials towards underage drinking to prevent and reduce alcohol use among youth. The project will be measured using Oregon Student Wellness Survey data, pre and post test data from Social Norms presentations and online surveys to fill in any areas where data is lacking from the school surveys.
The coalition will prevent and reduce youth substance use by implementing the following strategies: Improving collaboration among Walton County Prevention Coalition's partner organizations and across the county as a whole by providing leadership training for key local organizations who are involved in prevention; training key leaders in prevention on effectively using electronic media and social marketing; and implementing a social norming campaign utilizing media advocacy to prevent youth alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana use that targets youth aged 11-17 and their parents with positive social norms messages through local media and social networking.
The coalition will prevent and reduce youth substance use by implementing the following strategies: (1) Build the Coalition's strength, capacity and effectiveness. (2) Alter community norms that are favorable to substance use, and particularly underage drinking. (3) Proactively engage the community to reduce the incidence rate of early onset substance use by children.
