The MATTERS concept came to life in Buffalo, NY through collaboration between UBMD Emergency Medicine and Jacob’s School of Medicine University at Buffalo in 2016. In Spring 2022, the MATTERS Team hosted local, state-wide, and national partners to discuss expansion and improvement of the MATTERS Network.

The next iteration of the MATTERS platform will expand to include more geographic locations, other substance use disorders and mental health diagnoses. We are very grateful to work with professionals from across the United States, and appreciate the support of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Region 2 Director, Dr. Dara Kass.

Thank you to our partners at AbbeyMecca for developing this great video!
