Strengthening Flint Families

Project Name:
Strengthening Flint Families
Project Type:
Description:
Strengthening Flint Families is a community-based behavioral health intervention designed to reduce behavioral health disparities and improve family resilience in the Flint Community by providing multiple levels of peer support and family services. Strengthening Flint Families is comprised of three behavioral health interventions: at the Individual level: Peer Recovery Coaches (PRCs); at the Family level: Strengthening Families Program; and at the Community-level: a Multi-Media Campaign. As a major project of the Flint Center for Health Equity Solutions (FCHES), the three behavioral health interventions are excellent fit for the needs of economically distressed, minority-majority cities such as Flint. This research project is a hybrid type III implementation trial that focuses on how to best implement these effective behavioral health interventions to reach under-served populations and maximize sustainability while evaluating the effectiveness of the programs themselves.
