Understanding the Spectrum of Behavioral Health Services
Collaborating TTC: Pacific Southwest PTTC
December 2, 2019


The Pacific Southwest Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) is offering a new product line for prevention practitioners and other key stakeholders called Best Science Slide Decks for Prevention Professionals, or slideDecks4U for short.  These slide decks are intended to highlight a topic in 10 slides or less. The purpose of this slide deck is to provide prevention practitioners with researched and vetted tools they can feel confident in using in their prevention presentations. All slide decks include presenter notes and full references.  

USE: These slides can be used as a stand-alone overview of the updated “Spectrum of Behavioral Health Services” (formerly, and still often referred to as the “Continuum of Care” or “Continuum of Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Services”) or incorporated into other presentations or materials.  Citing the Pacific Southwest PTTC as the author of these slides is greatly appreciated, noting that the majority of the content is derived from the various Institute of Medicine/National Research Council/National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine reports on this topic and other key publications.   
Each slide deck includes presenter notes to guide the speaker on presenting the information contained in the slides.  The slide deck also include the references to all of the literature used to source the information presented.

NOTE: Please do not alter any of the slides. If you need additional information, please contact the Pacific Southwest PTTC, email pspttc-info@casat.org  or call toll-free: 1-833-9SW-PTTC.
