Extract

As Dr. Satel’s Open Forum essay (1) illustrates, much has been said and written lately about the need to more adequately address the needs of people with serious mental illness and their families. Addressing these needs is a critical part of the overall mission of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). SAMHSA is also charged by Congress with helping to build resilience and emotional health, prevent substance abuse and mental illness and their disabling effects, implement current evidence-based practices, cultivate new practice models, and support individuals who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders.
