Your Input on Strengthening Behavioral Health is Needed

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Indian Health Service (IHS) with the support of the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) led the development of the Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda (TBHA). The TBHA is a blueprint for strengthening policies, programs, and activities through collaboration amongst federal, Tribal, and other partners. Input from Tribal leaders, Tribal administrators, and Tribal representatives over the course of approximately 18 months was used in framing elements, priorities and strategies that are viewed as foundational for improving behavioral health in Tribal communities.

The first draft version of the TBHA was unveiled at the NIHB National Tribal Nations Health Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, on September 21st. Comments are being requested on the draft TBHA during an open Tribal comment period through October 30, 2016.

To obtain an electronic copy of the draft TBHA and/or provide comments online, please go to this webpage, or visit the NIHB’s webpages dedicated to the TBHA by clicking here. Written comments, using the same format as the online form, may be submitted via email to tribalconsultation@samhsa.hhs.gov.

All comments must be received by October 30, 2016.

Should you have any questions, please e-mail Sheila Cooper.
