2022 SAMHSA’s Sequential Intercept Mapping Workshop
In November 2022, PBHA convened stakeholders from Potter and Randall Counties for the Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) Workshop. The workshop was facilitated by team members from the Texas Behavioral Health and Justice Technical Assistance Center (TA Center) on behalf of Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). The SIM is a strategic planning tool and the workshop brings together community leaders, government agencies, and systems to identify strategies for diverting people with mental illness and substance use disorders away from the justice system into treatment.
2019 SAMHSA’s Sequential Intercept Mapping Workshop
In May 2019, Potter County, PBHA, and Texas Tech Mental Health Institute supported the Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) workshop. This was a 2-day workshop that was conducted by facilitators from Policy Research Associates, Inc. through a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The purpose of this workshop was to map our community resources and gaps to improve cross-system collaborations to reduce the involvement in the justice systems by people with mental and substance use disorders. Please see above for the report, SIM map, and recommendations to improve our local cross-system collaboration. Community organizations are encouraged to join PBHA and its stakeholders in developing community-based strategies.
