The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is pleased to sponsor and announce a four-topic webinar series, entitled Addressing Serious Mental Illness: Effective Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Strategies. These webinars are offered May-August 2015 by the partners in the Mental Health Block Grant Coalition, which has been developed and sponsored by SAMHSA.

The Coalition consists of the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, Mental Health America, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors, the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery, the National Council for Behavioral Health, the National Disability Rights Network and the National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health. This Coalition impacts thousands of Americans by delivering web-based training and technical assistance on a range of policy issues to multiple stakeholders in state and local behavioral health systems centered on promoting and enhancing the federal Community Mental Health Block Grant.

These webinars, focusing on Children's Services, Peer Services, Home and Community-Based Services, and Collaboration with Criminal Justice, will describe new and emerging practices across a variety of services. In addition, each webinar will explore the types of outcomes sought for different approaches, how these approaches are financed, and provide state and local examples.
