The Northwest MHTTC serves as a resource for the behavioral health workforce. Broadly stated, that means offering training and technical assistance in pursuit of the identification, prevention (at secondary and tertiary levels), management, and treatment of serious mental health conditions. In addition, the Northwest MHTTC leverages recent advances in dissemination and implementation science to use best-practice strategies to help systems of care adopt and sustain evidence-based interventions for serious mental illness (SMI). Our efforts are focused on HHS Region 10, which encompasses Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
