4 119 PLANNING -PHILOSOPHY The Boards are committed to an inclusive, popular model of systems planning. This means that planning efforts begin and end with the people to be served. The process is informed by: the best available research; the most current data available; subject matter experts in Alaska and nationally; and understanding of the cultural diversity of Alaskan communities. The process relies on a diverse and dynamic collection of communication tools, to ensure meaningful and ongoing engagement of constituents and stakeholders. 3

5 120 PLANNING RECENT, ONGOING The Comprehensive Integrated Mental Health Plan has been on hiatus since Winter The Boards recent and ongoing planning efforts are in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Services, Alaska Commission on Aging, the Alaska FASD Partnership, the Statewide Suicide Prevention Council, and our constituents. t Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems Strengthening Families Keeping Kids Safe (RBA planning ggroup) Workforce Development State Senior Plan Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders State Suicide Prevention Plan Mental Health Block Grant Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant Family Voice/Youth Policy 4

6 121 PLANNING FY The Boards will review progress made under the last five year state plan and begin developing the next five year plan. This planning process will rely on the experience and knowledge of our constituents to identify areas for system improvement, and on the expertise of our partners in developing aplanof action. A comprehensive review of public input and state effort to improve the behavioral health system over the last 10 years will be done in order to provide perspective and insight to the process. Meaningful opportunity for ongoing participation and input in the process will be provided to all Alaskans interested in promoting and protecting the mental and emotional health and wellness of our neighbors and our communities. Experts on health care research, evidence based clinical services, program management, data collection and utilization, peer support, health care financing, emerging treatment and recovery practices, and other topics that arise will be consulted so thatt the best information possible is available from which to make decisions. 5

7 122 6

8 123 PREVENTION & EARLY INTERVENTION The Boards continue to advocate for policy change that promotes wellness through prevention and early intervention programs. These include supporting and expanding the behavioral aide program, increasing access to Mental Health First Aid training, including peer support programs for family and caregivers in prevention and health promotion efforts, and working with Annual School on Addictions and Behavioral Health to provide education on prevention. In addition to these, the Boards will continue to advocate for those increments that were recommended for early childhood prevention and early intervention screening and services. 7

9 124 VOLUNTEERISM & HEALTH The Boards value the contributions to wellness and health offered by community volunteers and grassroots organizations. To increase community awareness of these efforts and to promote their value the Boards will: 1. Continue to identify and learn about what s already happening statewide, and promote efforts and connecting to resources; 2. Connect with local wellness coalitions so that statewide policy- making is informed by local/community successes. 8

10 125 INCREASE ACCESS The Boards will continue to emphasize how imperative it is that behavioral health be included in health care systems change whether through patient centered medical homes or expansion of technologies like electronic health records. Within this context, the Boards will partner with constituents t and stakeholders to increase access to mental health, substance abuse, and other health care services. 9

11 126 PEER SUPPORT &INCLUSION& The Boards are heartened by the increased inclusion of peer support in the overall behavioral health system. We will continue to work with the Department of Health and Social Services, Alaska Peer Support Consortium, and behavioral health providers to ensure that the anticipated system change is effected. The Boards will continue to advocate for express inclusion of peer support in health care reform efforts. The Boards will continue to address stigma and discrimination in communities, in schools, and statewide through public education and awareness building and by advocating for equal treatment of consumers and family members by the system that serves them. 10
