State Prevention Enhancement (SPE) Policy Consortium

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 abuse prevention, mental health promotion, and related issues.

The Consortium is responsible for the state-level planning and implementation of collaborative strategies to address substance abuse prevention and mental health promotion. The Consortium completed an updated Five-Year Strategic Plan in November 2017.

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