SAMHSA Releases Interim Strategic Plan

Posted 11/13/2022

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is pleased to announce the release of the agency?s Interim Strategic Plan (ISP). The ISP presents a new mission and vision that emphasize a more person-centered approach and briefly describes our priorities and guiding principles. This ISP not only represents SAMHSA?s thinking as an agency, but also reflects the insightful feedback we have received from our many partners over the past months. However, this is only a first step as we are also developing a full four-year Strategic Plan (2023-2026). Later this winter, we will post a draft of the new Plan on our website; the intent of this posting is to solicit public feedback to ensure the Plan is as responsive and inclusive as possible.
