  23. Alan Albright Prevention and Early Intervention Coordinator

  24. Develop universal and selective interventions and programs to help prevent the development of serious emotional or behavioral disorders and mental illness. Provide “short–duration”, “low-intensity” interventions to avoid more extensive mental health services or to prevent a mental health problem from getting worse.

Alleviate the need for additional mental health treatment and/or transition to extended mental health treatment. Through the Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) component, the MHSA provides funding to:

  25. KEY TO TRANSFORMATION: HELP FIRST • “To facilitate accessing supports at the earliest possible signs of mental health problems and concerns, PEI builds capacity for providing mental health early intervention services at sites where people go for other routine activities (e.g., health, education, community organizations).”(DMH PEI Guidelines Sept. 2007, page 2)

  26. PEI PROJECTS • Each PEI project should be designed to address one or more PEI Key Community Mental Health Need:• Disparities in Access to Mental health Services • Psychosocial Impact of Trauma • At-Risk Children, Youth, and Young Adult Populations• Stigma and Discrimination• Suicide Risk • and one or more PEI Priority Population: • Underserved Cultural Populations • Individuals Experiencing the Onset of Serious Psychiatric Illness• Trauma Exposed• Children/Youth in Stressed Families• Children/Youth at Risk of School Failure• Children/Youth at Risk of Juvenile Justice Involvement
