Toolkit for community conversations about mental health

This toolkit includes three components.

The Information Brief provides data and other facts about the promotion of mental health, prevention of mental illness, and how to promote awareness, early identification, access to treatment, crisis response, and recovery supports. The Information Brief helps educate and inform community conversation participants and facilitators about mental health issues.

The Discussion Guide provides a resource to help guide participants and facilitators through a one-day community conversation. The discussion guide offers a framework for holding a successful and productive conversation.

The Planning guide provides tools to help people hold a one-day community conversation, including information for planning conversations, recruiting and training facilitators, recruiting conversation participants, and identifying steps participants may want to take in order to raise awareness about mental health and promote access to mental health services.

Data-based planning for effective prevention: State epidemiological outcomes workgroups

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention has funded State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroups (SEOWs) to assist states, jurisdictions, tribal entities (collectively referred to as states), and communities to adopt and implement the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). The SPF provides a structure for the selection, funding, implementation, and evaluation of substance abuse prevention programming and, under a 2010 funding initiative, mental, emotional, and behavioral health programming.
This publication describes the evolution, structure, and accomplishments of SEOWs as a key component of SAMHSA’s support of states as they address problems related to substance abuse and mental, emotional & behavioral (MEB) disorders. It highlights SEOW successes and offers guidance for providing data to support prevention decision-making in the future at the state and community levels.
