Resources and Tools

May is Mental Health Awareness Month! The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) offers key programs that can help faith-based communities support those in recovery from mental illness and prevent suicide.Learn more about how these SAMHSA services can help you and your loved ones!
A blog promoting the release of a new fact sheet and webpage on cultural and linguistic competency in disaster preparedness and crisis response has just been released by SAMHSA in consultation with the Office of Minority Health and utilizing the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (CLAS Standards). These resources detail ways in which public health officials can better meet the needs of diverse populations and improve the quality of services and health outcomes during and after a disaster.
ProMedica, a local non-profit health system, has provided more than 125,000 meals through its community partners. Learn how they’ve joined with private, faith, and service partners to take this gleaning program to scale.
The Emory University Interfaith Health Program, in partnership with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invite you to join a webinar on how outreach through networks of faith-based and community organizations can overcome barriers associated with culture, poverty, mistrust (historical and legal), and geographic isolation.


The HHS Partnership Center continues to host a series of webinars for faith and community leaders, and make sure you know about other webinars sponsored by our Department that we believe are of interest to you. All webinars are open to the public and include a question and answer session where you can ask HHS staff any questions you may have.
