Benefits to Camp APEX
Provided resources for families otherwise lacking in our area
Engaged youth and provided continuity of services during summer break
Reinforce sustainability through diverse, billable services
Evolved perspective of mental health services
Challenges Identified
APEX Offices

Low enrollment rate in higher grade level schools
Solution recommendation: Bridge communication/knowledge gaps through regular meetings with teachers/staff and regularly attend public school board meetings

Lack of crisis protocol in some school districts
Solution recommendation: Individualize our community-based crisis protocol and introduce implementation in schools/counties where a crisis protocol is nonexistent

Lack of cross collaboration between school districts
Solution recommendation: Implement the Recovery Project Initiative in January 2018 to bring students, parents, school staff together raising awareness, strengthening school and mental health provider relationships and to unite community school districts for one cause.

Lack of mental health awareness/reducing stigma in school curriculum
Solution recommendation: Continue trainings and education i.e. 5k fun run/recovery project art show/media campaign/mental health classroom guidance involving all school and community partners
