PRISM (Promoting Research Initiatives in Substance Use and Mental Health) Collaborative was established to address disparities in substance use disorder and mental health treatment and outcomes by working with communities to develop, test, implement, and disseminate community-driven interventions to improve the lives of individuals living with substance use disorders and mental illness.

PRISM Collaborative is a part of the Washington State University Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine.


Our training and technical assistance teams offer a wide range of learning opportunities on topics including Contingency Management, Mental Health First Aid, and Rural Opioid Prevention, Treatment and Recovery. Click here to see what is currently being offered.


Our research and evaluation teams consist of individuals from diverse backgrounds and research disciplines, including psychology, social work, prevention science, and neuroscience. Our research is rooted in community partnerships, with projects focused on alcohol and substance use disorders, early psychosis, co-occurring disorders, culturally appropriate treatments for substance use disorders among American Indian and Alaska Native communities, and impacts of criminal legal system, housing instability, stress and cognition.
