Services for At-Risk Helena Youth in Alternative High Schools

Project Term: 18 months; Ended 2017
Grant Amount: $45,000

For this project, Intermountain collaborated with an alternative learning school to provide behavioral health services to students. The collaboration resulted in a 63 percent increase in screenings for substance use disorders and an increase in referrals to higher levels of care, substance use disorder assessments, and other community-based support. Unfortunately, the project struggled with the turnover of key staff and did not see as much of a decrease in reported or suspected substance or alcohol use as anticipated. However, the project did strengthen the relationship between the school and Intermountain and laid the foundation for future collaborations.
