SAMHSA will release Toolkit for Community Conversations About Mental Health to support communities interested in holding discussions about mental health. The Information Brief section is available for print and electronic download.

Hospital leaders and members of the AHA’s Section for Psychiatric and Substance Abuse Services often share the innovative strategies that can be used to help increase awareness of and improve access to behavioral health services. We have created a webpage listing a few of the many cases of programs established by member psychiatric and community hospitals across the country to address the behavioral health needs of the public, and invite AHA members to submit further examples.
