On September 3, 2009, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Maryland Governor’s Office for Children, and the Annie E. Casey Foundation hosted a meeting at the Johns Hopkins Mt. Washington Conference Center, Connecting the DOTS: Promoting Positive Mental health and Youth Development and Preventing Mental Disorders, Substance Abuse, and Youth Violence by Increasing the Synergy of Efforts. The meeting was convened to determine how federal agencies, states, and local communities are implementing and sustaining effective policies and practices and also to identify barriers overcome and/or encountered in these efforts. The meeting was attended by more 100 individuals including federal agencies, state and local policy makers, and academic researchers.

The Maryland Community Services Locator (MDCSL) was developed by the Center for Substance Abuse Research (CESAR) at the University of Maryland, College Park on behalf of the Maryland Governor’s Office of Crime Control & Prevention. Law enforcement officials, service providers, community members and others are invited to use this tool to find local Maryland programs and resources.
The Center collaborated with the Baltimore City Paper's Murder Ink, a section compiled and reported by Anna Ditkoff. Murder Ink provides coverage of all homicides in Baltimore City from 2006 to the present.
