SAMHSA awards NCUIH funding to assist Urban Indian Organizations with implementing the National Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda (TBHA)

On Friday, September 30, 2016, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) announced the approval of a one year funding contract to the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) for outreach to Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) to address and implement the priorities of the National Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda (TBHA). The overall goal of this project is to develop input on strategies to address behavioral health systems and supports, support healing from trauma, and other priorities in the TBHA to improve the health and wellbeing of our urban communities. The TBHA offers the opportunity to find common ground for developing interrelated and integrated actions for addressing the behavioral health needs of American Indians and Alaska Natives, including those residing in urban areas.
