Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda

Tribal leaders have consistently called for coordination and collaboration among federal agencies whose efforts contribute to the health and well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native communities. In response, tribal leaders and various federal agencies developed a blueprint for enhanced coordination. The National Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda is a national document that guides behavioral health policy and programs for Native Americans. It includes an overarching, inclusive scope of the behavioral health challenges that native communities face; key national behavioral health priorities; and proposals for leveraging existing investments that stakeholders are urged to consider.
