Northeast & Caribbean MHTTC

The Northeast & Caribbean MHTTC is located at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, School of Health Professions, Department of Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Counseling Professions.  

Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the MHTTC will work with organizations and practitioners who provide mental health services to strengthen their capacity to deliver effective, evidence-based interventions. 

We will offer:

  • Targeted trainings for specific audiences (e.g., providers, administrators, teachers, police, peers) delivered in-person and via online educational courses.

  • Intensive train-the-trainer programs to enhance local capacity and sustainability of new practices.

  • Technical assistance/consultation to facilitate the translation and adoption of new approaches into practice. 

  • Webinars on a range of topics informed by stakeholder input.
