Program Summary

Project Overview: The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services will implement the Montana Adolescent Health Program (MAHP) with rural and American Indian middle school students in eight counties in Montana.

MAHP is undergoing an evaluation to determine its effectiveness and contribute knowledge to the teen pregnancy prevention evidence base, which currently includes few programs that target youth in rural counties and American Indian youth.

Target Population: 6-8th grade Native American, frontier/rural youth

Geographic Area Served (Urbanicity of Community): Blaine, Dawson, Pondera, Big Horn, Hill, Roosevelt Powell, and Rosebud (Rural)
