Yesterday, ICF International subsidiary Macro International (ICF Macro) was awarded two contracts by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services. The contracts are both indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity and could end up being worth more than $20 million.
Under the terms of the contract, ICF Macro will continue to assist SAMHSA in its evaluations of the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative, the Lifeline crisis hotline program, and the National Child Traumatic Stress Initiative. The company’s support teams will ensure the continuation of high quality suicide prevention and child traumatic stress treatment evaluations. All three programs are dedicated to supporting people in times of crisis.
“We are extremely pleased to continue and expand our relationship with the Center for Mental Health Services as it continues to address these national priorities of suicide prevention and the treatment of traumatic stress and exposure, ” ICF Macro vice president Christine Walrath said. “Our assistance will help to ensure that the promising and effective programs that save lives and promote mental health and wellness are being funded and sustained.”
