Allison Barlow examines a paraprofessional approach to promoting behavioural health among indigenous populations specifically within American Indian communities in rural reservation lands in the United States. In these communities, behavioural health issues – such as substance abuse, intentional and unintentional injuries, conduct problems and high-risk sex – all peak in adolescence, leading to a high burden of years of productive life lost.
