Mid-America MHTTC Technical Assistance


 

What is Technical Assistance?

The technical assistance (TA) provided by the Mid-America MHTTC is free assistance and consulting provided by our team of trainers. TA is for organizations ready to work directly with an MHTTC trainer or trainers to receive in-depth guidance to implement evidence based practices or make quality improvements in mental health programming within the organization. Due to staffing, timing, and funding, all TA requests are subject to MHTTC availability. Requests will be reviewed by our team of trainers. If we are unable to accommodate your request, efforts will be made to connect you to other supports. Complete this form if you are interested in applying for TA from our team of trainers. 

 

Technical assistance is offered in four content areas:

  1. Integrated primary care
