About Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration

SAMHSA helps sick people get better; not people with the flu or a cold but people with substance abuse and mental health problems. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration runs three centers for the treatment and prevention of substance abuse and for mental health services. Each center works with state and local agencies, providing funding, support, and program development guidance. SAMHSA also has programs for disaster preparedness and recovery, children's mental health, school violence prevention, and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Founded in 1992 by Congress, SAMHSA is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.
