Strengthening the System: Alaska's Comprehensive Integrated Mental Health Program Plan 2020-24

VISION: Alaskans receive comprehensive prevention, treatment, and support services at the appropriate level of care across the lifespan, leading to meaningful lives in their home communities.

Strengthening the System identifies priorities for the next five years to inform planning and funding decisions to meet the needs of Alaska Mental Health Trust beneficiaries. The intent is to strengthen the system of care to allow a comprehensive approach that quickly meets their needs.

In addition to defining the nine goals below with corresponding objectives, for the first time, strategies are identified to provide specific approaches to reach those goals. Also unique to this plan is a strong focus on prevention and early intervention efforts that build resilience and address trauma in individuals who are at risk of developing disabling conditions.

The Scorecard is a data measurement tool that examines the population health outcomes of Alaskans receiving care and services as described in Strengthening the System. It is researched and produced annually by leaders and planners representing DHSS, the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, and related state agencies, boards and commissions.

The 2020 version of the Scorecard has been revised to include both new indicators and new narratives that are consistent with Strengthening the System and is formatted to be consistent with the use of the Results-Based Accountability framework (RBA).
