The ANCAP newsletter for Fall 2013 is attached. It contains events, achievements, future goals, and services available. You can contact the ANCAP coordinator with any questions at cjustice<mailto:cjustice>

ANCAP seeks to address behavioral and mental health issues and promote wellness among Alaska Native communities by enhancing cultural pride and connectedness (collective self-esteem). By recruiting, retaining, and training Alaska Native behavioral health researchers providers, and leaders, not only are we addressing the disparities regarding the numbers of Alaska Native individuals in such areas, but the likelihood of improving the cultural sensitivity, appropriateness, and applicability of behavioral health research and services for Alaska Natives are also increased. – See more at: http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/ancap/#sthash.O9rgkJQR.dpuf
