The core mission of the New England MHTTC is to use evidence-based means to disseminate evidence-based mental health practices across the region. The region consists of:

  • Connecticut
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont

 To ensure the responsiveness of our work, we will actively develop and maintain a network of government officials, policymakers, administrators, and community stakeholders, providers, researchers, youth and adults, and family members from each of the six states to guide New England MHTTC activities.

As a committed ally, New England MHTTC recognizes that the New England area is home to the ancestral land of many Native tribes, including the Abenaki, Mahican, Massachusett, Minisink (Munsee), Mohegan, Narragansett, Niantic, Nipmuc, Pennacook, Pequot, Pokanoket, Quiripi, and Wampanoag tribes, which includes the Cowasuck, Chappaquidick, Hassanamisco, Mashpee, Nulhegan, Pocomtuc, Mattabesic, Paugusett, and Schaghticoke bands and communities. These lands were and continue to be of great importance. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to honor ancestors past, present, and future of these tribes, bands, and communities and recognize their continued existence and contributions to our society. We also acknowledge that all the places our distributed staff live and work as well as where we provide services and hold events are Indigenous lands.
