The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has announced the 2010 Mental Health Promotion winners. These competitive, national awards are designed to recognize community-based organizations and coalitions that successfully implement evidence-based interventions.
3-C Family Services, our partner company in Cary, NC, received the award thanks to its use of the suite of S.S.GRIN (Social Skills Group Intervention) programs. The S.S.GRIN programs are targeted, evidence-based interventions that help children learn how to make and keep friends, improve social skills, and reduce the risk of being the victim of bullying or teasing. 3-C Family Services uses the programs in a community-based clinic setting, and the programs have also been used in school settings as a Response to Intervention Tier II intervention.
