CHAMP (Collaborative HIV prevention and Adolescent Mental health Project) Family Program

This program has received more than fifteen years of funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Associated evaluation research examines the impact of this family-based HIV prevention and mental health promotion program targeting 4th-, 5th-grade and 6th- 7th-grade African American and Latino urban youth in two urban areas, New York City and Chicago. A particularly relevant component of the CHAMP Family Program study is the guidance provided by Collaborative Boards that oversaw the design of the CHAMP Family Program, co-delivered the intervention in school-based and community sites, and has been an integral part of the evaluation planning and research. To date, the program has been replicated in South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago.
