Everett Recovery Cafe proposes to expand and adapt our current Recovery Coaching Program in order to provide more coaching to more individuals at the Café, and to broaden the presence of recovery coaching in the community and within other organizations that work with similar populations by increasing the availability of Recovery Coach trainings, and inviting other organizations to take part. Recovery Coaching is a goal-oriented form of peer support that is particularly effective in helping people in recovery from substance use disorders and can also be useful for people in recovery from homelessness, trauma, and some mental health challenges. At the Everett Recovery Café, Recovery Coaches are trained and certified, follow a professional and ethical protocol, are supervised and are paid for their time. Recovery Coaches help a person in recovery create a Recovery Wellness Plan, which serves as a framework that helps a person think strategically about what they would like to achieve in various sectors of their life, such as family, housing, employment, relationships, and then develop a step-by-step path toward those objectives. During regular one-on-one sessions, the coach helps the person define their specific recovery goals, assists in breaking those overarching goals into achievable steps, and then works with the individual to overcome any barriers that arise. Recovery Coaching is an action-oriented approach that emphasizes improving someone’s present life. An integral part of Recovery Coaching is helping the person navigate the human services system and access community resources. Recovery Coaching is founded on the belief that there are multiple pathways to recovery and each person’s journey is unique.

Project Period: 7/31/2020 - 2021/11/30

The WA COVID 19 ERSP will implement best practice care transitions for individuals with suicide risk from emergency departments and inpatient psychiatric facilities to outpatient care. Community and service providers and systems serving adults at risk, including domestic violence providers, will receive suicide training in assessment of risk and protective factors, best practice interventions and treatment (including lethal means), and follow up care. The Project's target population is adults 25 years of age or older, high risk individuals in health and behavioral health care settings, victims of domestic violence and their dependents, and who have also attempted suicide or experienced a suicidal crisis after discharge from an emergency department or inpatient psychiatric facility. The WA COVID 19 ERSP is a statewide collaboration between the Washington State Health Care Authority, Harborview Medical Center's Behavioral Health Institute (BHI), New Beginnings' domestic violence program, and emergency departments and inpatient psychiatric facilities located in the greater Seattle area and NE Washington to implement evidence based digital strategies for caring for individuals with a history of suicide risk during the critical transition from inpatient to outpatient care. In the month after patients leave inpatient psychiatric care, their suicide death rate is 300 times higher in the first week and 200 times higher in the first month than the general population's (Chunt et al., 2019). Hospital emergency departments and inpatient psychiatric facilities are the front lines. We will use this grant opportunity to advance findings from the Washington State Bree Collaborative Suicide Care Report and Recommendations, which includes risk assessment and screening, clinical protocols for timely and adequate care, lethal means reduction, collaborative safety planning interventions, and evidence based treatment and follow up care. Through consultation and training with our states leading experts in suicide prevention we will implement Caring Contacts (CC), an intervention that involves sending patients who are suicidal brief, non demanding expressions of care and concern following discharge. Our goals and objectives include: 1) serve 202 patients in year 1 and 300 by the end of the Project), 2) train 4,640 professionals in year 1 and 6,500 by the end of the Project, 3) reduce suicide related deaths through use of evidenced based practices, 4) serve patients in a culturally competent, patient centered care manner, and 5) seek sustainable program financing.

CM-SW mentors children impacted by the substance use disorder of a loved one. Community Project Funding will help 36 kids attend this innovative year-round camping program proven to break the intergenerational cycle of addiction. CM-SW serves children like Lacey who lost her dad to a drug overdose. Lacey was shunned by kids at school after her story got out. At camp just three weeks later, Lacey told her story at campfire. Everyone listened, reached out and embraced her. She found friendship, safety, and a place to begin healing. CM-SW is a research-based national model developed by Eluna Network and staffed by trained mentors and behavioral health professionals. For many kids, it’s the first time they talk about their family member’s addiction and connect with others like themselves. They share feelings and ask questions like, “Why does my dad like alcohol more than me?” They learn it isn’t their fault and—most important—they can make different choices as they grow up. Washington has one of the highest rates of mental health disorders in the country. Additional youth mental health services are needed: a local school reported more than 60% of their students have high adverse childhood experiences (ACE) scores, indicating higher risk for future substance use problems, mental health disorders, and physical conditions. Access to care is limited. Per Mental Health America, Washington ranked 27th in mental health services for youth. Clearly the need is great and continues to grow as services lag, access becomes non-existent, and adding the limits Covid-19 pandemic has caused, programs like Camp Mariposa provide a huge benefit to children in need. Camp Mariposa – Southwest Washington is a project that benefits the community by preventing substance use disorders in children exposed to them in them home environments. More than 33% of these kids have a history of mental health issues. In SW Washington, almost 61% have experienced loss or grief; almost half have lost a parent due to death or separation. The 2016 "Healthy Youth Survey" found that 20% of 10th grade students drink alcohol and 17% use marijuana. These are some of our community's most vulnerable kids, and Camp Mariposa is changing their lives. A 2019 study by Louisiana State University found that among all Camp Mariposas across the US, almost 93% of attendees stated they learned things at camp that can help them when they're at home, and 95% said there are adults they trust at camp. Most importantly, 93% say they know they will not become addicted to drugs or alcohol just because they have a family member who is. That is why Camp Mariposa is important.
