The Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health (CAIANH) was established in 1986 and is the largest, most comprehensive, and longest standing program of its kind in the country. Our mission is to promote the health and well-being of American
Indians and Alaska Natives, of all ages, by pursuing research, training, continuing education, technical assistance, and information dissemination within a biopsychosocial framework that recognizes the unique cultural contexts of this special population. CAIANH
houses numerous projects funded by a wide range of private, state, and federal agencies, and partners with human service organizations in more than 200 urban, rural, and reservation communities.

Nov 30, 2020
The Centers are proud of the latest issue
of American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research.
The authors come from institutions across the country to share research on a diverse range of topics related to AI/AN health across the lifespan, including:
- A study of stressful life events and mental health symptoms in adolescents in Hawai'i
- An examination of cultural identification and alcohol use among American Indian college students
- A descriptive study of drug and alcohol policies at tribal colleges and universities
- An evaluation of the Good Road of Life Training, a culture- and resilience-based curriculum designed to use the sources of strength of Native peoples
- A study examining resilience and stress in a group of Hopi female caregivers
There are clear lines of inquiry that are similar among the articles, including a focus on alcohol use among young AI/AN adults and the interplay of stress and resilience for Native peoples. We hope you find the issue thought-provoking and instructive and find additional connections in the research.
