Circles of Care


A Holistic Approach for Mental Health & Wellness

Circles of Care is a 3-year grant received by SIR from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA). The goal of Circles of Care is to plan & design a holistic approach to support mental health and wellness for our Native American Youth and Families. The project reflects the System of Care philosophy, which is a coordinated network of community-based services working together to meet the needs of Native Youth and Families.

Circles of Care Core Values

  • Community Driven
  • Youth Guided
  • Culturally Competent

Community member involvement and collaboration is key to the success of our project. Please look for our logo on flyers, posts and media for opportunities to use your valuable tribal voice in planning and developing our System of Care.
