Tips and Resources




The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) asks that Town Hall Meeting organizers provide feedback on each event they host. Acquiring this information is important because SAMHSA is accountable to Congress and the public for ensuring that its funding is used for efforts that achieve positive and measurable results. Sharing the results of your event demonstrates the value of Town Hall Meetings in helping your community engage in evidence-based prevention of underage drinking. Your feedback also helps SAMHSA develop materials that can improve the effectiveness of future Town Hall Meetings.

Organizer Survey

Within 1 week after their event, event organizers will receive instructions on how to access and complete an online Organizer Survey for each event held. While all organizations are strongly encouraged to complete a survey, organizations that accepted a planning stipend agreed to complete a survey.

Participant Feedback Form

SAMHSA will be asking a number of randomly selected event organizers to distribute 40 copies of a Participant Feedback Form at their events. If your organization is selected, please distribute the form to attendees and then collect the completed forms, which should be returned to SAMHSA in the stamped, self-addressed envelope. Contact info@stopalcoholabuse.net if you need the feedback form in Spanish.

Other Evaluation Methods

The Share Success feature offers another opportunity for participating organizations to let SAMHSA and others know about the ways in which their Town Hall Meetings are contributing to underage drinking prevention. Organizations also can use this feature to upload their promotional materials, meeting videos and photos, and copies of media coverage.
