The goal of CAPE Phase Two is to develop a low-cost, replicable community level early warning system for behavioral health (mental health and substance abuse). This is happening through Index Communities, Index Light Communities, Innovation Communities, and one Replicator Community. 


Index Communities – Local teams have identified 30 knowledgeable community members to respond to biweekly surveys about behavioral health in their communities over the course of the next year. The national CAPE team analyzes the data and provides monthly reports to the local teams so they can identify potential spikes or increases and develop relevant and timely interventions. There are nine Index Communities.

Index Light Communities – Local teams have identified 30 knowledgeable community members to respond to monthly surveys about behavioral health in their communities over the course of the next year.  The national CAPE team analyzes the data and provides monthly reports to the local teams so they can identify potential spikes or increases. There are four Index Light Communities.

Innovation Communities – Local teams have developed an early warning protocol, unique to their community, and are working to test that protocol.  When spikes or increases are detected, an intervention will be developed and put into action. Many of these include the use of regularly updated administrative data, such as police or hospital data. There are four Innovation Communities.

Replicator Community – WRDC Director and CAPE Regional Specialist for the West region, Don Albrecht, will use successful components from Innovation Communities to replicate a community early warning system for Seattle, WA.
