A Focus on SAMHSA’s New Strategic Plan

Like any organization, from the largest corporation to the smallest grassroots advocacy group, our nation’s lead agency for behavioral health, SAMHSA, has a strategic plan to guide it. After more than 1,400 public comments and months of refinement, the latest version of that plan, Leading Change 2.0: Advancing the Behavioral Health of the Nation 2015-2018 has been released.

In the latest Focus newsletter, CAFE TAC takes a look under the hood of this new guiding vision for our country’s approach to behavioral health. Find out what the common themes from those who commented to SAMHSA were, and what priorities made it into the final version. This is the document that will set the course for the lead behavioral health agency for years to come, and likely influence the evolution of behavioral health care nationwide, so it’s essential for everyone in the behavioral health community to know what
it includes! Check out the new Focus here.
