Call for Proposals: Behavioral Health Information Pilot Communities
Posted: December 19, 2013
The Community Assessment and Education to Promote Behavioral Health Planning and Evaluation (CAPE) project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and facilitated by the USDA. The CAPE project will fund eight pilot communities to participate in a joint exploration of what communities are now using to gauge community behavioral health and how these methods can be improved. This includes an online survey of local health decision makers (broadly defined) aimed at developing a better understanding of where local leaders draw their information about community behavioral health trends as well as a joint shaping and testing of new tools to make the process more accurate and efficient. Proposals are due January 21, 2014. Community selections are expected to be announced at the end of January.
