Introducing HEAL Connections: A New Way to Learn About Research
By Claire Beard, HEAL Connections Program Leader
We all agree that research results need to benefit people living with health conditions like chronic pain, addiction, and co-occurring conditions. But, too often, important information gets stuck in journal articles and conference presentations. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Helping to End Addiction Long-term® Initiative, or NIH HEAL Initiative®, is working to solve that problem.
The initiative, often referred to as HEAL, is an NIH-wide effort to speed scientific solutions to stem the national opioid public health crisis. Almost every NIH Institute and Center is accelerating research to address this public health emergency from all angles.
The initiative funds more than one thousand projects across the United States.
The ATTC Network is funded by SAMHSA and the author’s opinions do not necessarily represent the opinions of SAMHSA or the ATTC. We respectfully offer this article to encourage healthy discussion to advance our field.

TA Center Resource Spotlight - E4 Center
Voices of Older Adults with Lived Experience with Mental Health and Substance Abuse
Stigma about mental health and substance use is strong at any age, but particularly among the current cohort of older adults. Engage, Educate, and Empower for Equity: E4 Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health Disparities in Aging is dedicated to decreasing stigma around the experience of these issues and around getting effective treatment. One way to do this is by listening to older adults about their experience of mental health and substance use, treatment, and life after treatment through video. The E4 Center has compiled a video series intended to start conversations in classrooms, communities, and homes. Watch them here.
