    Dear Members,

    We have heard that some members have had their PPE orders impounded.

    SAMHSA has issued a letter (attached) from Assistant Secretary McCance-Katz clarifying that the Administration considers PPE ordered for behavioral health providers to be for a legitimate need and purpose.

    Of course it is!

    We encourage members to share this letter with the impounding authority, should your PPE be seized.

    Please let me know if you hear of these instances, and please let me know if you have any questions,

    Thank you,
