While several resources in the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Underage Drinking Prevention and Education Initiative's (UADPEI) can be found online at stopalcoholabuse.gov, their new toolkit, which can be accessed via Dropbox, provides essential behind-the-scenes resources and tools that will help further educate affiliates, campus communities and external constituents with the latest data on underage drinking prevention.
The partner toolkit is organized into separate folders to cover all the necessary topics. The background materials folder provides the relevant resources that set the stage for the who, what, why and how of the SAMHSA UADPEI initiative. These can be used as reference points to learn about the work, products, and tools available to you and your partners from SAMHSA. You will also have access to the most recent Report to Congress on the Prevention and Reduction of Underage Drinking and Key Substance Use and Mental Health Indicators in the United States as well as a quick overview of UADPEI to help create relevant resources for your community. All materials are provided as PDFs. New tools and resources will be added as they become available, so bookmark the Dropbox link and check back often!
