The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. Charged with reducing the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities, SAMHSA has made significant strides throughout its 22-year history and serves as a national and global leader in the field of behavioral health care. Building on a long tradition of leadership and service, SAMHSA is focused on leading change to better meet the behavioral health care needs of individuals, communities, and service providers. SAMHSA remains committed to adapting and responding to current and emerging challenges to advance the mission of HHS and to promote and provide specialized resources to address the evolving needs of the behavioral health field. SAMHSA's strategic plan, Leading Change 2.0: Advancing the Behavioral Health of the Nation 2015-2018 (Leading Change 2.0), outlines six key Strategic Initiatives that SAMHSA will employ to meet new and existing goals, deliver on its mission, and realize its vision moving forward. These Strategic Initiatives include the following: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness Health Care and Health Systems Integration Trauma and Justice Recovery Support Health Information Technology Workforce Development These initiatives build on accomplishments over the past four years and the need for SAMHSA to cultivate a behavioral health system that reflects the understanding that the wellness of individuals and their families is central to their mental and physical well-being. Each initiative includes an overarching purpose, specific goals and objectives, and measures to determine success. In addition, each initiative includes a summary of how SAMHSA will address relevant behavioral health disparities. Leading Change 2.0 will guide SAMHSA as it: sets budget and policy priorities; manages key investments, such as grants, contracts, technical assistance, and SAMHSA staff time and expertise; engages public and private partners at every level; and tracks and disseminates information about its progress. This work continues to build the foundation for improving the nation's behavioral health over the next four years.show more
