6 Local Needs Assessment: The First Step in Prevention SAMHSA Strategic Prevention Framework
7 Key Features of Local Needs Assessment Describe the makeup and history of the community to provide a context within which to collect data on its current concerns.Describe what matters to local peopleDescribe the needs identified by community stakeholdersCompile and describe the evidence suggesting that identified issues should be a priorityDescribe the resources available in or to the community that help address this issueSource: Community Tool Box, University of Kansas.
8 Getting Traction with Local Needs Assessment Build recognition of and support for the need for some type of initiative and actionInvolve critical sectors and key stakeholders of the community to ensure the process is relevant for identifying actual needsAcknowledge and validate barriers or promoters to local-level changeDevelop a plan to handle potentially negative needs assessment resultsPlan for time, resources, and expertise
9 Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth (MiPHY) Why?Best Practice for prevention science and at MDE/MDCHCloses Capacity Gap. Most communities do not have the time, resources and/or skills to collect, enter, manage, analyze, and report drug and violence data, especially trend dataOpens up much-needed resources for other steps of a strategic prevention framework at state, regional, and local level
10 MiPHY Overview Developed by MDE in collaboration with MDCH Meets needs assessment and reporting requirements for SDFS and aligns with school health improvement initiativesReduces the burden of conducting multiple student surveysReliable and validFree of charge to districts and communitiesPrivateParental notification requiredThird bullet – focus on this issue for superintendents and the numerous requests for surveys.MiPHY is a virtual One-stop shop for assessing student health risk behaviors and risk/protective factors.5th bullet – emphasize “free”add some motion
11 MiPHY Survey Features LEA use and local-level decision making Adapted from reliable, valid surveys (Communities that Care and Youth Risk Behavior Survey)Offered every other year, starting in FY 2007/2008 (off year of the state YRBS)Provided at no cost to districtsOnline administration (secure site)Grades 7, 9, and 11 (middle and high school students): census or sample populations3rd bullet- emphasize that this is the year to sign on or wait for 2 years
