National Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda


The Tribal Behavioral Health Agenda (TBHA), published in 2016, was a monumental collaborative effort between many Tribes, leaders, organizations, and federal agencies. In 2022, SAMHSA began the process of convening Tribal leaders and federal agencies to discuss the next steps for the TBHA. During these discussions, Tribal leaders emphasized the need for increased awareness and application of the TBHA.

To make the TBHA more accessible and user friendly, it has expanded to this online platform. You can easily navigate more information about sections of the TBHA and find relevant resources and links below.
