Mountain Plains MHTTC and ATTC Outreach at the North Dakota Child and Family Services Training Center’s Annual Conference
The Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) exhibition booth provided Technology Transfer Center program overview information at the North Dakota Child and Family Services Training Center’s Annual Conference. Dr. Andrew J. McLean, MHTTC Technical Trainer, hosted training sessions on Shared Decision-Making, and Psychotropic Medications: A review for Patients, Guardians, Advocates and Care Providers. In addition to Mountain Plains MHTTC program and trainings, staff also distributed SAMHSA supported resources on suicide assessment and suicide survivor support to a wide range of child protection workers. Recognizing the continued need for addressing co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, The Mountain Plains Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) also distributed over 75 boxes of free Narcan Nasal Spray (provided at no cost by the North Dakota Department of Health and Humans Services) to conference attendees. The conference ran from July, 23 through July, 25.
