Behavioral Health Services
Central Peninsula Hospital is a major partner in a regional collaboration, and a lead grantee on a three-year Division of Behavioral Health Prevention and Early Intervention Grant. During the first three-year cycle, CPH was recognized by the state as a model project and the coalition requested CPH remain as the lead grantee during the current cycle. Now in it's fourth year, the Community Prevention Team meets monthly to identify needs and conducts a variety of community programs including family and parenting programs, early intervention programming in schools, behavioral health screenings of older adults, community based depression screenings, recovery month celebrations, Fetal Alcohol Disorder screenings, and focused interventions for very high risk incarcerated youth.
Community Outreach Activities:
Partnering with Central Peninsula Counseling Services, mental health professionals offer free depression screenings twice yearly in the community and by appointment at Central Peninsula Hospital.This activity is funded in part by the State of Alaska, Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Behavioral Health.
Substance Abuse Treatment Services
Central Peninsula Hospital provides targeted treatment services to two distinct populations that were previously identified as un-served or underserved. Adults requiring residential treatment, to address substance abuse, are eligible for care at Serenity House Treatment Center. The Diamond Willow Program serves adolescents at risk for, or returning from, residential treatment settings.
