Mental Health Technology Transfer Center
The Mountain Plains - Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MP-MHTTC) provides comprehensive training, resources, and technical assistance to mental health providers and other practitioners in Region 8. The MP-MHTTC team will develop new, and identify existing, resources which will then be disseminated and easily accessible across the region and the MHTTC network. The team will also build and maintain strong collaborative relationships with key stakeholders in the region and nationally.
What Services We Will Offer
The MP-MHTTC will offer training and technical assistance to the public mental health workforce, inclusive of areas of pre-professional, post graduate, and continuing preparation. The Center will serve Region 8 which includes the states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.
The primary focus of MP-MHTTC is to provide training and technical assistance to mental health service providers serving persons with mental health disorders, especially those with serious mental illness or a serious emotional disturbance. Particular attention will be given to serving providers with limited access to service delivery systems.
Anticipated trainings and technical assistance will include topics such as:
Materials will be identified, developed, and disseminated across the six states which will include multi-media training packages. A thirty-person advisory board, with a majority of members with lived experience, will guide the activities of the MP-MHTTC team.
