Cultural Strengths and Challenges in Implementing a System of Care Model in American Indian Communities

This study examines five American Indian children’s mental health projects that have developed systems of care based on their own cultures and the strengths of their families. The authors identify 18 recurring practices that have proved effective in using traditional culture as a resource for modern care networks. Finally, they examine issues of funding and implementation, and address further steps that should be taken.
