The purpose of the RCORP-Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health (CABH) program is to establish and expand sustainable behavioral health care services for children and adolescents aged 5-17 years who live in rural communities, and to prevent substance misuse. With funding of up to $1,000,000 per year, over the four-year period of performance award recipients will use RCORP-CABH funding to achieve the following three program goals through a consortium-based approach:
- Goal 1: Service Delivery. Establish new behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery services for children and adolescents aged 5-17 years in the target rural service area.
- Goal 2: Training and Peer Mentorship. Improve the capacity of rural health care providers, paraprofessionals, non-clinical staff, and community members to care for and support children and adolescents aged 5-17 with behavioral health needs, through providing training and peer mentorship opportunities.
- Goal 3: Community Partnerships. Build community partnerships to ensure that children and adolescents, and their families, have access to community resources and human services that support prevention of, treatment of, and recovery from behavioral health disorders.
HRSA encourages you to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities as compared to the rest of the population.
