Federal Commission on School Safety Comprehensive Guide

After months of research, visiting successful programs around the nation, and receiving testimony from experts and concerned citizens, the Federal Commission on School Safety released a 177-page report detailing 93 best practices and policy recommendations for improving safety at schools across the country.

Medicaid Coverage of Medication-Assisted Treatment for Alcohol and Opioid Use Disorders and of Medication for the Reversal of Opioid Overdose

The report discusses Medicaid coverage of FDA-approved medications for treatment of alcohol and opioid use disorders, limitations on coverage (such as prior authorization requirements), background on federal laws, policies, innovative practices, and policies at the state level.

Disease Outbreaks and Pandemics: How You Can Prepare

In the United States, influenza (flu) season is in fall and winter, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Seasonal flu, as well as infectious disease outbreaks and pandemics, may bring feelings of fear, stress, and anxiety. Being prepared for a pandemic or outbreak will allow you to focus on recovery and stress management if such an event occurs.

Working with Children with Serious Emotional Disturbance during Disasters

A Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) may worsen in children who experience a disaster or other traumatic event. Children without an SED may also be more likely to develop a mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder, which may be worsened when they are simultaneously experiencing other hardships such as separation from a parent or closing of their school. SAMHSA offers resources for disaster behavioral health professionals who may work with children during the planning, response, or recovery phases of a disaster.
