This monograph, edited by Spero M. Manson and Norman G. Dinges, reviews the National Academy of Science's Institute of Medicine publication titled, Health and Behavior: Frontiers of Research in the Biobehavioral Sciences (1982), as it applies to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs). The monograph offers comprehensive recommendations concerning the direction of future mental health research, with special emphasis on AI/ANs.
A conference at Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, Oregon, in April of 1985 was convened to address the issues and concerns raised by the Health and Behavior volume. The monograph reports the results and findings of twenty nationally recognized experts on the AI/AN population. It contains nine chapters, ranging in coverage from children to older adults, cross cut by numerous substantive themes. This is part of the first volume of The Journal of the National Center for American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research.
