The Public Health Planning Intern will provide data collection, evaluation, and planning support for the Community Mental Health Initiative. Every five years, public health agencies conduct a community health assessment to identify priority health needs and then plan with the community to address them. Mental health was chosen as the priority health concern for Boulder County during the 2017 Community Health Assessment. The Community Mental Health Initiative has two goals: improving mental health for all Boulder County children and youth by supporting evidence-based approaches to address access and enhance primary prevention, intervention, and treatment; and expanding access to mental health services for all residents through policy. A focus of the current year is to assess current best practices in local school districts, identify gaps, and develop a multi-year implementation plan in partnership with schools, community partners, and community members.
