Building Healthy Communities

The Building Healthy Communities program is designed to develop community-based approaches to youth solvent abuse and mental health crisis, the two main components of the program.


Solvent Abuse

The solvent abuse component enables communities to develop local programs aimed at preventing the abuse of solvents and to intervene as needed, which could involve residential treatment.  

Mental Health Crisis Management 

This component is designed to complement the mental health promotion and prevention activities of the Brighter Futures Initiative Program. It enables communities to respond to crisis, such as suicide, as well as to heal from them. It also enables communities to receive crisis-related training, such as suicide prevention training.
