This document provides an overview of the review process for the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP), a past program of the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. NREPP was an evidence-based repository and review system designed to provide the public with information on mental health and substance abuse interventions. The Suicide Prevention Resource Center used NREPP in the past to help identify programs with evidence of effectiveness that are relevant to suicide prevention.

Please note that NREPP was discontinued as of January 2018. Because some program listings on SPRC.org still include NREPP ratings, this Overview document summarizes historical information about the NREPP review process to help put these ratings in context.
