SAMHSA Elevate CBOs Webinar Series: Community Needs Assessments

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will host a webinar as part of the Elevate CBOs Webinar Series: Community Needs Assessments, on Wednesday, August 10, 3:00-4:30pm EDT.

“Elevate CBOs” is an overarching policy-driven initiative at SAMHSA’s Office of Behavioral Health Equity (OBHE) to build capacity, increase the visibility, and highlight the unique role of CBOs serving under-resourced communities in behavioral health.

You’re invited to attend a community needs assessment data workshop. While this virtual workshop is open to the public, this opportunity intends to provide technical assistance to National Network to Eliminate Disparities in Behavioral Health (NNED) members (free to join) and minority-serving and under-resourced community-based organizations (CBOs).

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

Understand the purpose of a community needs assessment

Identify who should be involved in a community needs assessment

Plan and conduct a community needs assessment

Learn about the impact made by community needs assessment reports
