Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I

The Healthier Community Action Team is a project within AHW's Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative, an eight-year, $20 million initiative bringing together 10 community coalitions from across Wisconsin to address pressing mental health needs within their communities. A three-phase initiative, phase one served as a funded learning and planning phase, supporting community coalitions in developing a critical project focus and implementation plan. Through this project, Healthier Community Action Team partners sought to develop an implementation plan that would support the creation of a model sustainability system encompassing culture, community involvement and support to build a healthier community by integrating and incorporating local culture to successfully accomplish goals.

• Completed the Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I learning community and planning phase

• Successfully developed project focus and implementation plan, receiving funding award for Phase II five-year project implementation period
