988 State Legislation Survey

  • 1.  988 State Legislation Survey

    Posted 30 days ago

    Dear Association Executives,

    We want to share two items with you related to 988. First, a workgroup of national behavioral health organizations, is collecting information about 988 state legislation. What are your 988 policy hurdles?  Please complete this 988 State Legislation survey by Friday, April 22. The survey will take 5-10 minutes. 

    Secondly, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) rolled out a new one-stop-shop for 988 resources at samhsa.gov/988. The site contains a 988 partner toolkit for SAMHSA's 988 implementation partners (crisis call centers, state mental health programs, substance use treatment providers, behavioral health systems and others) to provide key messages, FAQs and more information about what 988 is and how it will work.

    Please contact Keisha Pitts or Aaron Polacek if you have any questions.
