Client

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

Services

Website Content and Communication Management for SAMHSA.gov, Modernization and Enhancements, Digital Health and Data Governance (508 compliance)

Goal

Disseminate 508 compliant opioid crisis data to the general public via SAMHSA’s digital communication platforms.

Impact

In 2017, there were more than 130 daily opioid overdose deaths. To combat this crisis, SAMHSA’s 2018 priority was to communicate the severity of the opioid crisis to the public. SeKON helped prepare 508 compliant communications, which included distributing the Surgeon General’s Spotlight on Opioids. This spotlight provides the public with opioid-related information – research, suggestions, available services and recommendations for action – in one, easy-to-read document (available on SAMHSA.gov).
