The Circles of Care Project will serve the San Carlos Apache Indian reservation and community. The San Carlos Apache Tribe has approximately 16,874 enrolled members, and has a 1.8-million-acre reservation located in Gila, Graham and Pinal counties in southern Arizona. The goal of the program is to highlight and advance the mental health resources in a culturally-specific manner that will draw from our ancestral knowledge to build resilience, prevent and increase care and service coordination for Apache youth. The Wellness Center, the Tribe’s behavioral health provider, seeks to do so through partnership, policy development, and linking evidence-based practices to ancestral knowledge and cultural activities. Through community engagement, coalition building, and planned prevention events the team will incorporate and ensure that youth prevention is built on evidence-based practices that will be culturally and developmentally appropriate as the community sees fit. The project will utilize a community-based approach to determine the readiness of the community to instill a trauma-informed systems of care approach. The project will provide direct prevention services to 50-60 tribal youth in year two through three. The project will also train community members over a period three years on topics related to trauma informed care, system of care approach, historical trauma, adverse childhood experience, resiliency, and indigenous well-being. The project further seeks to develop and implement six collaborative agreements, sustained youth prevention, and a tobacco free workplace policy.
