Youth & Young Adult Early Intervention Initiative Request for Application (MHA-FY21-YYA-EarlyPrev-010) - Funding Application Period: 1/15/2021 to 2/10/2021 - *Updated*

Eligible applicants

Ohio institutions of higher education (IHE) with expertise in behavioral health prevention and early intervention, Institute of Medicine’s categories for prevention, SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention Strategies and The National Academies Fostering Healthy Mental, Emotional and Behavioral Development among Children and Youth

Purpose of RFA

The purpose of this RFA is to identify an IHE partner to serve as the lead organization for the project and meet the RFA scope of work.

Overview 

Ohio will develop and deploy a Youth and Young Adult Early Intervention Framework that will outline best practices for intervening early to prevent and decrease the severity of mental, emotional and behavioral health problems (including substance use) in young people ages 10-25, including specialized information for high-risk youth. The framework will provide a guide to what early intervention should look like across Ohio communities.

Core to the framework development will be examination of early intervention strategies across diverse communities and issues of behavioral health equity within those communities. This analysis is expected to inform the need for comprehensive early intervention services that meet the needs of diverse populations.

Along with the development of an overarching guide, the initiative will include a partnership and investment in local innovation around early intervention. OhioMHAS will identify three potential pilot projects representing Appalachia, Rural/Suburban and Urban to build upon new approaches to early intervention in each area that meet the unique needs of their community.
