SAMHSA’s GAINS Center is currently soliciting applications from communities interested in the in-person Sequential Intercept Model (SIM) Mapping Workshops. SIM Mapping Workshops are designed to bring together a local, cross-system, multidisciplinary group of key stakeholders from a particular jurisdiction (typically a county) to facilitate collaboration and to identify and discuss ways in which barriers between the criminal justice and behavioral systems can be reduced through the development of integrated local strategic action plans. There are three SIM Mapping Workshop options for participants to choose from:
- Traditional SIM Mapping Workshops
- SIM Mapping Workshops to develop comprehensive, community-wide strategic plans for addressing opioid and other substance use
SAMHSA’s GAINS Center will provide the SIM Mapping Workshops free of charge to selected applicants between March and August 2023. Applications are due November 10, 2022.
Informational webinars will be held on October 19, 2022, at 11:00 AM and October 20, 2022, at 1:00 PM, on what the opportunity includes and how to submit applications.
Visit the Policy Research Associates webpage to learn more, including additional details on the two available workshops.
