URC is positioned to help advance the nation’s behavioral health

URC has been awarded a new five-year IDIQ contract by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide communications, technical assistance, and training support.

SAMHSA is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. SAMHSA's mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities. It is charged with improving the quality and availability of treatment and rehabilitative services in order to reduce illness, death, disability, and the cost to society resulting from substance abuse and mental illnesses.

For 22 years, beginning in 1992 when SAMHSA was established, URC provided technical assistance, training, and communications expertise to SAMHSA staff, grantees, and constituents. URC also supported SAMHSA’s predecessor, the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration (ADAMHA).

We are excited to be working with SAMHSA to help carry out their important work.
