The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Technology Transfer Centers (TTC) purpose is to develop and strengthen the specialized behavioral healthcare and primary healthcare workforce that provides prevention, treatment and recovery support services for substance use disorder (SUD) and mental illness.
The SAMHSA TTC program is comprised of three networks, the Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC), the Mental Health Technology Transfer Centers (MHTTC) and the Prevention Technology Transfer Centers (PTTC) which have regional centers, national coordinating center, an American Indian & Alaska Native Focused Center, and a Hispanic & Latino focused Center. The TTCs provide in-depth technical assistance, live and online trainings, and develop resources and tools on many behavioral health topics.
This forum will feature a facilitated panel with representatives from the New England ATTC, MHTTC and PTTC who will share about their center’s prioritizes and what they offer to Maine. Round table discussions with the centers and audience will follow the panel, with the goal of defining and sharing about the educational and technical assistance needs of Maine’s workforce.
- Identify training needs for the behavioral health field
- Increase coordination between the centers and Maine’s workforce
