National Training and Technical Assistance Center for Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health (NTTAC)
SAMHSA has awarded the Center for Applied Research Solutions (CARS) to implement the National Training and Technical Assistance Center for Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health (NTTAC). CARS leads a partnership that includes Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Texas Institute for Excellence in Mental Health, Change Matrix, American Academy of Pediatrics, FREDLA (Family-Run Executive Director Leadership Association), and Youth MOVE National.
NTTAC is a SAMHSA-funded initiative to increase access to, effectiveness of, and dissemination of evidence-based mental health services for young people (birth to age 21) and their families, including young people experiencing serious mental illness or serious emotional disturbance (SMI/SED). NTTAC supports Children’s Mental Health Initiative (CMHI) grantees and provides an array of trainings, technical assistance, and resources to providers, organizations, and agencies from across the system of care.
