Three tools provide guidance for MCH programs addressing AYA behavioral health. Part of the Center’s AYA Behavioral Health CoIIN, these “legacy products” are based the Center’s experience with two cohorts of state-based partnership to improve AYA behavioral health:
- Self-assessment: State/jurisdictional Maternal & Child Health Capacity to Improve Systems of Mental Health Care for Adolescents and Young Adults. This tool helps guide MCH programs through a comprehensive assessment of capacity to improve mental health care for AYAs, as well as suggestions for developing a program based on assessment results.
- Pathways to Progress: This infographic provides a comprehensive overview of potential approaches to improving mental health for AYAs, serving as a Key Driver Diagram or logic/program model.
- State Snapshots: This tool presents an overview of the approaches and lessons learned from ten state MCH programs participating in the Center’s AYA Behavioral Health CoIIN.
