Webinar: Food for Thought

Eating your way to mental health
June 19, 2018

Diagnosable mental illness affects over 21% of the American Indian/Alaska Native population (SAMHSA). And while there is a general decline in rates of violence and drug abuse, rates of suicide, marijuana use and depression diagnosis are on the rise. Many factors play a role in mental illness, and in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we'll be exploring just one: Food.

Healthy choices in food, improved food security and increased subsistence farming may play a role in improving mental health. In this webinar, Jacqueline Gray PhD, Director of the Seven Generations Center of Excellence in Native Behavioral Health, and ANA Grantee, Ndee Bikiyaa (The People's Farm), will be exploring the ways in which you and your community can eat your way to mental health.
 

The key to a well-developed project as well as a competitive grant application is to have a firm foundation in community-based planning. Community planning and preparedness will enable you to easily move forward on projects and funding opportunities that align with your community's long-term goals.
