Adolescent and Young Adult Behavioral Health CoIIN


The Adolescent and Young Adult Behavioral Health Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (AYA-BH CoIIN) is working to improve the health of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) by strengthening the capacity of state MCH programs and clinical providers to address the behavioral health needs of AYAs (ages 10-25).

Behavioral health concerns are critical issues for AYAs.  Nearly half of lifetime diagnosable mental disorders begin by age 14 and three quarters begin by age 24.   There is not enough capacity in the US for mental health specialists to address the need for services.   We believe the public health and healthcare systems have a key role in helping AYAs reach their potential. 

This website is a comprehensive resource for states and participants enrolled in the AYA-BH CoIIN. It contains the most up-to-date information on the trainings, TA calls, measures, and resources for this project.
