Dear USET/USET SPF Family,
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will hold a Tribal listening session on March 23, 2023 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm EST to obtain input on updating the National Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda (TBHA). The TBHA was first released in 2016 following a collaborative process with Tribal leaders and representatives.
SAMHSA heard from Tribal leaders that an update to the TBHA, including lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, is necessary to ensure the TBHA continues to be reflective of Tribal behavioral health.
Interested participants may register for the listening session here. More information on the listening session, including framing questions, can be found in the Dear Tribal Leader Letter. SAMHSA is accepting written comments on this topic at OTAP@samhsa.hhs.gov until April 24, 2023.
For more information, please contact Ashton Martin, USET SPF Health Policy Analyst, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
