Our Mission

Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health


The mission for the Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health (CAIANH) is to promote the health and well-being of American Indians and Alaska Natives, of all ages, by pursuing research, training, continuing education, technical assistance, and information dissemination within a biopsychosocial framework that recognizes the unique cultural contexts of this special population.


​​​New Journal Issue

Volume 22, Issue 1

American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research is now available!​ This issue covers a variety of topics related to American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) mental health and well-being, including the use of Photovoice with Native Hawaiian youth to develop a drug prevention program; the influence of AN accent and reputation on clients' perceptions of therapist credibility; Healing of the Canoe, a cultural intervention for Native youth in the Pacific Northwest; and latent class analysis of factors influencing suicide risk in AI/AN youth.

The Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health is looking to expand our network of supporters through philanthropic giving. Every donor helps strengthen our program and advance our mission to improve the health and well-being of American Indians and Alaska Natives. If you’re interested in partnering with us to advance our mission, please consider making a personal contribution.
