The Community Mental Health Association of Michigan was named the Michigan partner for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Great Lakes Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC). This collaborative partnership between CMHA and MHTTC ensures that our members, partners, and persons served have access to on-line resources, webinars, and face-to-face opportunities that address evidence-based practices for mental health disorders.
The Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, designed to spread knowledge and resources from years of research regarding evidence-based practices that help support mental health efforts in an effective way. MHTTC’s purpose, in partnership with CMHA, is to effectively disseminate education, training, and technical assistance resources to foster the use of evidence-based practices across the mental health field by creating a collaborative network of supports and allies.
In our role as the Michigan partner to the Great Lakes MHTTC, our association regularly publishes two Michigan MHTTC newsletters, one that aims at directing readers to resources for mental and behavioral health practices, and one for school-based mental health resources. The aim of these newsletters is to make accessing the MHTTC resources easier for practitioners and providers and to promote evidence-based interventions. These newsletters are sent to CMHA members and stakeholders and also posted here on the MHTTC Newsletter page of the CMHA website.
