The VISTA member will play an important role in identifying community mental health needs and developing and implementing programming in line with RLNCEP’s mission. As a VISTA member within the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, the VISTA member will be part of a cohort of members in Tribal organizations across the country working on similar projects.
