The new issue of American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research is now available!
This special issue features work about how to share research and research findings in meaningful ways with Alaska Native and American Indian community members and presents information about the Alaska Native Health Research Forum in three sections:
      • background information shared with Forum attendees, the structure and content of the Forum itself, and the methods used to gather community feedback
      • three SCF research studies that disseminated results at the Forum differently, along with community feedback
      • a summative evaluation of the Forum and recommendations to improve communication with AN/AI people about research
