Welcome to the new SAMHSA Dialogue Blog. The goal of the blog is to provide an environment for SAMHSA’s diverse constituency to engage and discuss SAMHSA’s Six Strategic Initiatives. The Six Strategic Initiatives are:
- Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness;
- Health Care and Health Systems Integration;
- Trauma and Justice;
- Recovery Support;
- Health Information Technology;
- Workforce Development;
The SAMHSA Dialogue Blog is a place where up-to-date information including articles from SAMHSA staff, announcements of new programs, links to reports, grant opportunities, and ways to connect to other resources are located. Unlike traditional media, the SAMHSA blog will give you an opportunity to give real-time feedback and have your voice heard. The blog provides a venue to discuss what SAMHSA is up to, share ideas with others around the health care world and what you would like to see from SAMHSA. We look forward to your comments!
