The State Prevention Enhancement (SPE) Policy Consortium is comprised of representatives from 26 state and tribal agencies and organizations.

The goal of the Consortium is that through partnerships we will strengthen and support an integrated, statewide system of community-driven substance misuse prevention, mental health promotion, and related issues.

The Consortium is responsible for the state-level planning and implementation of collaborative strategies to address substance misuse prevention and mental health promotion. The Consortium completed an updated Five-Year Strategic Plan in October 2019.

Focusing on a data driven process, the Consortium completed a needs assessment that identified the following priority areas:



Sarah Mariani, SPE Co-Chair
Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Mental Health Promotion Section Manager
Washington State Health Care Authority, Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery


Patti Migliore Santiago, SPE Co-Chair
Community Based Prevention Section Manager
Washington State Department of Health
