NW-MHTTC is part of a national network of 13 centers funded by SAMHSA in 2018 to support the behavioral health workforce to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices for serious mental illness. NW-MHTTC provides training and technical assistance to HHS Region 10. Our area of focus for the network is evidence-based practices for psychosis.

Main Challenge

There is a critical gap between mental health treatments that are effective in research trials and the care that is deliveredto people living with serious mental illness.  NW-MHTTC works with systems, organizations, and mental health clinicians to strengthen their capacity to deliver effective evidence-based practices.

Our Approach

We provide three tiers of activities:

  • Universal strategies for wide dissemination and reach (webinars, online courses);
  • Targeted trainings and longitudinal support in an evidence-based practice to cohorts of learners;
  • Intensive strategies utilize effective implementation strategies to support EBP adoption, fidelity, and sustainability.
