Substance Misuse Prevention & Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Library Collection: Home


An Overview of the DMHAS Grant Library Collection

With the goal of supporting substance misuse prevention for youth, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) and the State Education Resource Center (SERC) has, through their collaborative effort, designed a comprehensive collection of curriculum and assessment tools that will support this goal across the state of Connecticut. This collection is part of a targeted tier 1 prevention effort program to provide classroom implementation and direct instruction to youth in the community. Funding for this collection has been made possible in part by a State Opioid Response Grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

For ease of use, the resource guide has been divided by grade level and age group. Each curriculum resource on this guide provides an overview of the target population, setting, risk factors addressed, and a description of the material.  We invite education professionals to explore our guide and check out these materials via our SERC Library catalog, which can be found here:
