Considering the increasing rates of overdose deaths in the United States and to ensure that all people have access to a robust continuum of care and evidence-based services to improve their health, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing continues to build support for a wide range of overdose prevention and harm reduction strategies. A few program and resource examples of this include:
- Harm Reduction Program
- Deflection and Pre-arrest Diversion to Prevent Opioid Overdose
- Tools for Overdose Prevention
In addition to funding 16 harm reduction pilot projects and efforts to increase the number of sites next year as well as to branch out to mental health and substance use treatment partners, the National Council has also recently become a partner of the National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance (TA) Center.
National Council is conducting a survey and key informant interviews to better understand how to inform program implementation with its members. National Council requests that respondents complete this survey to help the organization understand the technical assistance needs related to harm reduction among prevention, treatment, and recovery organizations. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and is anonymous.
By completing this survey by close of business June 3, respondents will also have the chance to enter an optional raffle to win a free registration for NatCon23, the National Council’s annual conference, which is being held in Los Angeles, CA.
Please contact Yoon Hyung Choi with any questions or to express interest in being interviewed as a key informant.
