The Chill Project by Allegheny Health Network (AHN)– Transforming the Delivery of Behavioral Health for Children, Adolescents and Adults
In response to the critical increase in debilitating anxiety, depression and mental health issues which have exacerbated since the onset of COVID-19, the AHN Psychiatry & Behavioral Health Institute created The Chill Project by Allegheny Health Network (AHN) to transform the delivery of behavioral health by offering localized and integrated service solutions leading to improved and sustainable long-term outcomes for children, adolescents, and adults. It is the vision of The Chill Project by Allegheny Health Network to expand behavioral health services and access points throughout the communities where our patients live and work. Integrating preventative behavioral health services allows AHN to dramatically improve access, health outcomes, and improve patient experience in an affordable and sustainable manner, while overcoming stigma and creating awareness related to mental health at a time when it is critical to the overall wellness of our region.
The Chill Project by AHN is a comprehensive curriculum designed to transform school culture through skill learning, implementation, and internalization for all individuals in the school community: students, educators, and caregivers. This model teaches the community a variety of skills to increase mindful awareness, leading to better decision-making and behaviors.
The Chill Project is radically collaborative, creating custom well-being programs for a wide range of audiences, embracing and adapting to the nuances of each space and place.
