SAMHSA’s Health Communications and Marketing Services for Public Engagement (HCM)


Collaborating to Support Prevention and Mental Health

When your goal is preventing substance misuse and mental illness, you need a diverse complement of partners working alongside you. Vanguard’s support of SAMHSA’s HCM program is helping to put prevention at the forefront of national conversations about alcohol, opioid addiction and severe mental illness. A key piece of our work is cultivating relationships between SAMHSA, other federal agencies, and national and community organizations in support of National Prevention Week each May and helping to form and sustain partnerships that align resources and build mutually beneficial relationships so that prevention messages are reaching a large and diverse audience.
