This project started before the world changed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The mission of our National American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (National AI/AN MHTTC) is to meet the needs for training and technical assistance expressed by Native mental health providers. In order for us to meet those needs, we regularly conduct formal needs assessments and key stakeholder interviews. The development of our formal needs assessments always start with provider input and collaboration to make sure we ask questions behavioral health providers serving Native clients deem important to address. Our overriding model for working with the urban and tribal Native communities is community-based participatory research and programming (CBPRP). Using this framework, we can focus both on the strengths and resources as well as the challenges expressed by the Native workforce serving clients with mental and behavioral health disorders and their communities.
