Learn More at www.mhttcnetwork.org
Years of research and knowledge of evidence-based practices show that well-designed mental health prevention, treatment, and recovery support efforts are effective and can have multiple benefits for individuals with mental disorders, including serious mental illness.
The purpose of the MHTTC Network is technology transfer - disseminating and implementing evidence-based practices for mental disorders into the field.
Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the MHTTC Network includes 10 Regional Centers, a Tribal Affairs Center, a Hispanic and Latino Center, and a Network Coordinating Office.
Our collaborative network supports resource development and dissemination, training and technical assistance, and workforce development for the mental health field.
We work with systems, organizations, and treatment practitioners involved in the delivery of mental health services to strengthen their capacity to deliver effective evidence-based practices to individuals.
Our services cover the full continuum spanning mental illness prevention, treatment, and recovery support.
The goals of the MHTTC Network are to:
- Accelerate the adoption and implementation of mental health related evidence-based practices across the nation.
- Heighten the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce that addresses the needs of individuals living with mental illness.
- Foster regional and national alliances among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policy makers, family members, and consumers of mental health services.
- Ensure the availability and delivery of publicly available, free of charge, training and technical assistance to the mental health field.
