    To clarify the semenatics - SAMHSA did not create a new tribal "agency." This is a new "Office" within SAMHSA that will be the main point of contact for tribal and American Indian/Alaska Native policy within SAMHSA. Some of the other "Offices" under SAMHSA include the Office of Behavioral Health Equity, Office of Communications. For more information about SAMHSA's overall organziational structure, go to:
