I am the coordinator for the Douglas County Healthy Youth Coalition in Colorado. I could use some coaching/examples around creating coalition bylaws for our unique situation. We are currently not a 501©3 but, have recently discussed perusing this status. We have two fiscal agents Tri-County Health Department and the Douglas County School District who manage our Substance Abuse Mental Health Administration grant. We want to begin to develop a bylaws document that creates more space for community ownership/decision making and allows us to tackle issues in our community that stretch beyond just what funders want us to address (Mental Health) Hope this helps, we look forward to hearing from you and your team

My name is Michael Vargas and I want to learn more about improving community health utilizing anchor institutions. I have been reading about community needs assessment to start my understanding of how to improve overall community health.

My question is this: How can I, as someone who isnt connected to an organization as of now, get more hands on experince to develop a deeper understanding of the topic and eventaully make a career out of this?

I have a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and worked at residential facilitates for mental health and substance abuse (which was several years ago). But I havent been able to work on any community healthy issues. As of now I am not associated with any orgs. I am just an individual that is learning about the power of improving community health. I am open for all suggestions of where I can get real experince starting from basically scratch.

Thank you so much for your time and effort!

Hi there. I read with great interest a reference to a "recent" study in your online publication (Chapter 3) in which African American students, who self-identified as Black, received lower test scores than those who didn't reveal their racial identity. Can you provide a citation for this study? I've searched and searched but can't find the source material. Many thanks!

I’m operating a summer virtual intern program in South Texas. A number of students will be faced with working remotely with an agency they have never visited. Information will be relatively limited based on web page material and contact with the agency’s director/staff. Is there a methodology of assessing an agency and its target population...and comparing it with other data that may be available? I'm interested in how to look at a service population and get national information about their condition and their potential eligibility for federal/state funding or the agency service being of interest to foundations and corporations.

I apologize for the scope of the question. Please respond with any related resources.

I haven't found anything like this yet, but I am wondering if you all may be able to provide any guidance on how we can determine which of our practicum sites would be considered community psychology settings? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello Everyone,
I am Sayeed, an expatriate living in Qatar. Writing my PhD thesis on the political economy of low carbon transition in Qatar. As I am completing my study, I want to create an online engagement platform where citizens and residents can contribute to developing citizen-based scenarios and pathways for a low carbon future in Qatar.
I've been looking for some time, which platforms are best to engage people digitally. As we are quarantined and working from home, people will have time to indulge in developing different scenarios.
Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Hello, I am a librarian trying to help students and instructors in a Public Health Program Planning course. Normally, students connect with community orgs for project-based learning. But these orgs are having a hard time making time for students because of reduced staffing, closed offices, etc. Any ideas on a substitute project? Thanks, just trying to get a feel for what might work these days.

Hi Team,
I work as a registered nurse at a local refugee health service and I am in the process of developing a plan to implement a healthy eating program into a local housing facility that houses approx. 20 people with asylum seeker backgrounds. In partnership with a nutritionist we have been granted a fellowship program within UQ to conduct an audit on the success of the workshops. I have been looking at the Community tool box project planning process with the use of the participatory evaluation tool and it completely fits like a glove with what we are trying to achieve. The workshops were in response to direct feedback from the community in which we would like to see nutritional change. What do we need to do to get your written consent/permission that we can use this model throughout the program??

This is a follow up question. I was asking for the rationale for this question:
The juvenile facilities in a city are clearly substandard. As a first attempt
to aid in correcting the problem, the social worker should:
a. Mobilize interest groups to explore and recommend alternatives
c. Organize the parents of the juveniles to demand change

The answer is A and you responded by agreeing because "interest groups" would mean the juveniles. But I assure you, the interest groups who would work to change the system would not be a group of 14-18 year-olds who were in detention, due to some interaction with the law. It would be their parents. So ask the question again:
I thought the answer would be C, to organize the parents. Is the reason C is wrong because of the second part of the answer “to demand change.”? Is A better because it says to “explore and recommend alternatives.”? Or is it better to begin with existing interest groups than to organize parents (who might not be committed to their children's success).

I interpreted interest groups as concerned parents, prison reform advocates, general public interested in the success of young people.

Your resource is amazing! And inspiring!

I am studying for the ASWB master's exam and hope you can help me understand the rationale for this question. I think questions are written to trip you up but as I am truly interested in community work, I want to understand the real reason why the correct answer is A and not C (I’m only presenting the two viable choices).

The juvenile facilities in a city are clearly substandard. As a first attempt to aid in correcting the problem, the social worker should:
a. Mobilize interest groups to explore and recommend alternatives
c. Organize the parents of the juveniles to demand change

I thought it would be C, to organize the parents. Is the reason C is wrong because of the second part of the answer “to demand change.”? Is A better because it says to “explore and recommend alternatives.”? Or is it better to begin with existing interest groups than to organize parents.

I hope you can see my confusion and help me understand the best approach to go about affecting change in the real world.

Thank you so much!!!

I am a student in a Canadian university (UQAM, Montreal) finishing my last year of Ph.D/Psy.D in community psychology and I am realising my intership in France in a non-profit organization.

In my intership, I am coordinating a territorial project (initated by the government) to bring all actors working around mental health (medical professionals, social professionals, community actors, etc.) to propose new initatives and new collaboration inside the territory.

I am supervised by a Social and Health Psychologist and I am realizing now that I sharing my experience with pairs in community psychology could help me structured my community work.

I don't know if this request could be answered, but thank you already fot all the work you do!

Last fall I taught a doctoral course at Northern Kentucky University entitle "Regional Stewardship". We used the KU toolkit extensively as a framework for evaluating regional community change efforts. The course focused on leading community change from the top,but i am changing the focus this fall to leading from the middle and not limiting to regional efforts. I am having trouble locating books/articles/videos on leading change efforts from the middle. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
