    ABSTRACT: A number of "behavioral health" exchange activities between Alaska and the Russian Far East took place during 1992-93. These included visits by a psychiatrist running one of the first "private polyclinics" in Magadan and by a narcologist to discuss the latest developments in alcohol services; a Behavioral Health Conference where Native health workers from Russia and Alaska shared experiences; beginning a multi-year epidemiology project; and a project to assess needs for a fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) prevention program in Magadan.

    ABSTRACT: This report provides a brief overview of the July, 1991 mental health team visit to the Magadan and Chukotka regions. A previous trip to the region was made by a mental health team in the summer of 1990. The sites covered were Anadyr, Magadan, Yagodnoye and Sinegorye. There are several follow-up activities and projects currently underway, such as a Fetal Alcohol Syndrome project, alcohol treatment comparisons, and Native Elder exchanges. The Soviet economy has had a marked effect in the type of treatments available in hospitals and clinics for all the types of physical and mental health problems. Because of the openness and cooperation of the Soviet medical personnel, much data and information has been gathered and will be used to determine the areas to be addressed for joint study and application.
