Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the US Federal agency charged with improving the quality and availability of prevention, treatment, and rehabilitative services in order to reduce illness, death, disability, and cost to society resulting from substance abuse and mental illnesses. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a branch of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

SAMHSA's Administrator is Charles G. Curie, M.A., A.C.S.W., who was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in October 2001. Mr. Curie reports to the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

In February 2004, the administration required the name change of an Oregon mental health conference from "Suicide Prevention Among Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender Individuals" to "Suicide Prevention in Vulnerable Populations."
