Florida Pathways to Awareness, Support and Services (FPASS) is a partnership between the University of Central Florida (UCF), juvenile justice prevention and intervention agencies, law enforcement/emergency services, and behavioral health agencies to coordinate, strengthen, and expand efforts to provide Mental Health First Aid (Y/MHFA) and Question, Persuade, and Refer (QPR) training, community-based referral options, and behavioral health education/outreach in 14 circuits across Florida. An interdisciplinary workforce of professionals who interact with high-risk youth (ages 6-17) and young adults (ages 18-25) will be trained. Our population of focus includes youth/young adults "at-risk" for juvenile justice involvement, serious or chronic juvenile offenders, and those who have experienced serious emotional disturbances, mental illness, developmental disabilities, a history of self-harm behavior, or have early symptoms of a mental health (MH) disorder or first episode of psychosis. Project goals aim to (1) enhance MH literacy and skills among parents and professionals to recognize signs/symptoms of MH problems (Objectives: develop comprehensive training/evaluation plans, develop formalized community partners (MOUs), implement Y/MHFA and QPR training, fidelity and evaluation plans); (2) improve cross-system referrals and linkages via the adoption of screening referral protocols across service sectors (Objective: develop MH risk identification/referral pathways, develop cross-system referrals between behavioral heath providers, assess changes in gatekeeper behaviors); (3) improve MH/suicide risk identification and crisis de-escalation techniques to appropriately respond to the needs of high-risk youth/young adults (Objectives: develop de-escalation training and referral plans, develop/disseminate de-escalation and suicide risk resources, deliver de-escalation training, measure changes in MH/suicide risk identification, preparedness, and de-escalation skills among trainees); and (4) increase public awareness/education about MH and community resources via the promotion/dissemination of help-seeking resources (Objectives: develop community outreach/engagement plans, develop disseminate community resource directories and educational materials/resources to increase MH awareness, participation in community events to cultivate partnerships and promote MH awareness). Over the life of the project, 44 unduplicated professionals will be trained to deliver Y/MHFA and/or QPR (12 instructors in Y1; 9 instructors in Y2; 13 in Y3; 10 in Y4). These instructors will train a total of 3,058 unduplicated professionals and parents/guardians (Y1: 427 trained; Y2: 626 trained; Y3: 725 trained; Y4: 741 trained; Y5: 539 trained). At trainings/events, 9,590 help-seeking resources and MH educational materials will be disseminated (Y1: 1,608 resources/2 events/63 trainings; Y2: 1,976 resources/2 events/70 trainings; Y3: 2,140 resources/2 events/63 trainings; Y4: 2,218 trainings/2 events/78 trainings; Y5: 1,648 resources/2 events/57 trainings) and 7,452 de-escalation and suicide risk screeners will be provided. All performance measure tracking, evaluation efforts, and quality assurance monitoring will be performed by UCF evaluators.
