SAMHSA Opportunity to Apply for SIM Workshops Focusing on Reentry and Community Corrections

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) Gather, Access, Integrate, Network, and Stimulate (GAINS) Center is seeking applications from communities interested in developing integrated strategies to better identify and respond to the needs of adults with co-occurring mental and substance use disorders in contact with the criminal justice system. Selected communities will participate in Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) workshops. The SIM workshops will enable local, multidisciplinary teams of people to collaborate; identify and discuss ways in which barriers between the criminal justice, mental health, and substance use systems can be reduced; and develop integrated local plans.

The SIM workshops will be offered at no cost to the selected communities between January and August 2018. Additionally, any costs associated with pre- and post-workshop coordination, conference calls, and facilitator time and travel will be covered. Applications should emphasize gaps and opportunities at Intercepts 4 (reentry) and 5 (community corrections) of the SIM. applications are due November 10, 2017.
