Northwest MHTTC 2021 Needs Assessment Report
March 8, 2022


In 2021, the Northwest MHTTC participated in the design and administration of a comprehensive, nation-wide assessment intended to gather information on the needs and priorities of behavioral health practitioners and administrators. This self-report survey gathered data about respondents' training and technical assistance (TA) needs, priority populations, and preferences on training format, timing, and length.

This Northwest report includes data drawn from the four states that comprise MHTTC Region 10: Alaska (n=77), Idaho (n=21), Oregon (n=88), and Washington (n=202). The findings presented in this report will be used to inform the planning of future training and TA events within the region.

During FY 2021, the 10 MHTTC Regional Centers conducted a needs assessment survey of key stakeholders, mental health organizations and practitioners, and others in their regions. Questions focused on technical assistance and training needs, telehealth services, and culturally responsive care specific to Hispanic and Latino and American Indian and Alaska Native populations (based on the MHTTC Network’s two national focus area centers). The MHTTC National report focuses on key findings from the 2,321 participants across the US states and territories.
