This 90-minute listening session is for members of Native communities of Oregon. Hosted by the Northwest MHTTC and the National American Indian and Alaska Native MHTTC.
The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center humbly seeks to develop a deeper understanding and connection with the numerous Native communities, leaders and governments in our Region.
We are collaborating with the National American Indian and Alaska Native MHTTC in holding listening sessions for each of the 4 States in Region 10, including partnering with Native consultants who have offered to host these events.
Through these listening sessions, we hope to:
- Establish and/or deepen connections with Native communities, governments, agencies and leaders in our Region.
- Understand Native-identified topics and priorities for mental health workforce training and technical assistance (TA).
- Generate collaborations in Aug ‘22-Sept ‘23, honoring the strengths & priorities determined by Native communities.
Please also feel free to pass this on to anyone who may be interested in participating. We know you are extremely busy, and if you cannot attend nor send a representative, we’d still much appreciate hearing from you and finding ways to collaborate. Please email [email protected]rg and someone from our team will get back to you.
Thank you and we look forward to connecting with you.
