Deep dive into prevention ethics: Ethical obligations and the SPF

Deep dive into prevention ethics: Ethical obligations and the SPF

This series will address the need for ongoing prevention ethics training. In six interactive virtual sessions, participants will focus on taking a deep dive into the principles of the Code of Ethics for Prevention Specialists with special focus on how these principles apply when implementing the Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF). Each session will focus on a different principle. After a short presentation, participants will work together in small groups to look at how that principle can be applied by our prevention workforce while implementing the SPF.

This prevention ethics series is for substance misuse prevention practitioners that have already completed a Foundations in Prevention Ethics training. If you would like to attend this series but have not yet completed the prevention ethics foundation course, complete the free, self-paced, online prevention ethics course on HealtheKnowledge before attending this ethics series.

In order to receive a certificate of attendance for this training, participants are required to actively participate and be on camera. Participants will be allowed into trainings up to 10 minutes after the start of the session.

FentAlert Challenge: Youth innovators advancing fentanyl overdose prevention

FentAlert Challenge: Youth innovators advancing fentanyl overdose prevention

Summer is often a time of substance use initiation for youth and young adults. The serious threat of fentanyl in our communities looms large and it is important to focus on prevention messaging during this time of year.

From 2019 to 2021, overdose deaths among adolescents aged 10-19 increased. About 90 percent of these deaths involved opioids and 84 percent involved illicitly manufactured fentanyl.

Engaging with youth and young adults can provide important insights into how this substance makes its way into our homes, schools, and communities and empower us to do something about it. That’s why the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is hosting a free webinar, FentAlert Challenge: Youth innovators advancing fentanyl overdose prevention, on Thursday, June 13, from 11 a.m. to noon PT. FentAlert Challenge youth and young adult winners will share their strategies to increase awareness, education, and prevention around the dangers of fentanyl. This challenge encouraged youth, ages 14-18, to develop a community strategy to educate their peers about fentanyl and fake pills—and prevent drug overdose deaths.

Breaking the hold: Addressing racialized trauma and menthol inequities

Breaking the hold: Addressing racialized trauma and menthol inequities

Menthol and the use of mentholated tobacco products can significantly contribute to an individual’s mental health challenges and cause concern to overall wellbeing such as increased stress and anxiety. Commercial tobacco, and specifically menthol cigarettes, have been historically marketed toward Black and African American communities, resulting in higher menthol use in these communities. The gaps in policy and lack of accountability for predatorial practices create a hold on the communities’ capacity to create necessary, sustainable changes to eliminate the toll of tobacco. A history of racialized, systemic trauma compounds the challenges in individuals’ tobacco cessation and recovery journeys. Join the National Behavioral Health Network on Thursday, June 20, noon to 2 p.m. PT, for a masterclass on understanding systemic, racialized trauma in relation to tobacco-related health disparities and applying intersectional frameworks to address menthol inequities.

Part 2: Layering evidence-based interventions with CSAP strategies: Building impactful prevention plans (Thursday, June 27, 3-4:30 p.m.)
Building upon the foundation laid in part one, the second webinar will demonstrate how various interventions, from practices to policies, align with the CSAP six strategies to create a layered approach.

Part 2: Layering evidence-based interventions with CSAP strategies: Building impactful prevention plans

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) West Strategic Prevention Technical Assistance Center (SPTAC) Team (HHS Regions IX & X) cordially invites you and your block grant sub-recipient grantees to join our regional webinar series, Tools for the trade: layering the six CSAP strategies for impact. This series is designed to equip your sub-grantees with the knowledge and tools needed to enhance their prevention work. Participation in both webinars is highly recommended but not required.

Part 1:  Mastering the six CSAP strategies to address community prevention needs (Thursday, June 20, 3-4:30 p.m.)
As the saying goes, "If the only tool you have is a hammer, it is easy to treat everything as if it were a nail.” Understanding the purpose and function of CSAP’s six strategies enables prevention practitioners to select the right tool or set of tools to be more effective in their work. This webinar will explore the purpose and function of each of the six CSAP strategies in building a comprehensive prevention plan tailored to specific community needs. Participants will also learn about common misunderstandings of CSAP strategies and gain practical examples for aligning strategies with community needs and reporting requirements.

Part 2: Layering evidence-based interventions with CSAP strategies: Building impactful prevention plans
Building upon the foundation laid in part one, the second webinar will demonstrate how various interventions, from practices to policies, align with the CSAP six strategies to create a layered approach. Participants will receive tips for developing comprehensive prevention plans that thoughtfully incorporate CSAP’s six strategies to address identified needs and achieve desired prevention outcomes.
