SAMHSA’s five-step Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) offers practitioners comprehensive guidance for addressing the substance misuse and related behavioral health problems facing their communities. This two-part webinar series introduces Steps 2 and 3 of the model: Capacity Building and Planning.

  • Part 1 will highlight opportunities and strategies for strengthening local-level capacity to participate in prevention efforts by increasing the buy-in and support of a diverse range of community stakeholders.
  • Part 2 will prepare participants to develop a comprehensive strategic plan to address identified needs with meaningful involvement from the cultural groups that will be served by our efforts.


These webinars will build on the foundation established during our February webinar series Conducting Community Needs Assessments to Guide Prevention Efforts. Participants will have a chance to discuss challenges they may be experiencing implementing these two steps of the SPF, and provide feedback to one another on strategies for overcoming these challenges.


Trainings take place on:

Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 1 to 2:30 pm ET

Tuesday, May 28, 2019, 1 to 2:30 pm ET
