About the Great Lakes MHTTC

The Great Lakes Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) is housed at the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

We are part of a national network, funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which includes a Network Coordinating Office, 10 Regional MHTTC Centers, a National American Indian/Alaska Native MHTTC, and a National Hispanic and Latino MHTTC.

Our collaborative network supports the mental health field in Health and Human Services Region 5 (IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, & WI) with: 

  • Training and technical assistance
  • Resource development and dissemination 
  • Workforce development  

Our Goals

  • Accelerate the adoption and implementation of evidence-based practices.
  • Heighten the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce.
  • Develop strategies for delivering culturally-informed care with diverse practitioners, researchers, policymakers, family members, and consumers of mental health services. 
  • Increase access to high-quality, low-cost or free-of-charge training and technical assistance for the mental health field. 

Who We Are

Faculty and staff from the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison lead this effort, in collaboration with the Great Lakes Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) and the Great Lakes Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC).
