Phase 1: Community Engagement and Assessment
Using the THRIVE Framework and authentic engagement for information gathering, the 10 collaboratives will identify protective factors, risk factors, opportunities, and priorities for action as determined by their communities.
Phase 2: Planning
Based on takeaways and data analysis from the assessment phase, the 10 collaboratives will generate strategies aligned with their community-prioritized THRIVE Factors that support resiliency, mental health, equity and well-being (especially for youth, their families, and historically excluded groups).
Phase 3: Implementation
With the support of PI's technical assistance and a continuous process of improvement throughout Phase 3, the 10 collaboratives will each take action to transform the prioritized THRIVE Factors (determinants of health) within their communities that create inequitable outcomes for mental health and well-being among families of color.
