Project: Underage Drinking Prevention: Town Hall Meeting Feedback Form— New The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) is proposing a 2008 Underage Drinking Prevention: Town Hall Meetings (THM) Initiative. In 2006, approximately 1,510 THMs were held by 1,262 community-based organizations (CBO) throughout the Nation. Each of the THMs strived to increase the understanding and awareness of underage alcohol use and its consequences by encouraging individuals, families, and communities to address the problem. The local THMs gave communities the opportunity to come together to learn more about the new research on underage alcohol use and its impact on both the individuals and the community. They also discussed how their communities can best prevent underage alcohol use. To help guide decision making and planning for future THMs, SAMHSA/ CSAP plans to conduct a process assessment of the THMs to be held in 2008. CBOs that agree to participate in this initiative will be asked to provide feedback about the implementation and results of the THMs in their community.
