Behavioral Health Fact Sheets
SAMHSA, September 2015
While many of us working in the substance misuse field have long-recognized the value of prevention, placing this work in the context of overall behavior health requires a critical shift in perspective. Applying a behavioral health lens to our current prevention efforts helps us to see the connections between substance misuse and related problems and to take the necessary steps to address these problems in a comprehensive and collaborative way.
CAPT developed a series of behavioral health fact sheets to help practitioners think about their substance misuse prevention work in the overall context of behavioral health.
In the event of a mental health or substance use crisis, call to connect with a licensed counselor, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bilingual support and medications to assist with recovery are available.
