Indigenous Behavioral Health Series




The Indigenous Behavioral Health Series for American Indian & Alaska Native Providers aims to provide a comprehensive training program for behavioral health practitioners working in AI/AN communities. It is designed to facilitate the education of mid-level behavioral health providers, such as behavioral health aides, mental health technicians, and peer support specialists. The program is developed for use in Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) and is modeled after best practices in tribal behavioral health. The program's objective is to provide a sustainable training regimen to encourage workforce development specific to behavioral health throughout AI/AN communities. The program can be implemented on its own or to complement and expand existing behavioral health training programs.
