Technical Assistance

The Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health (TA Partnership) helps communities transform the way services are delivered to children and families by supporting the core values and guiding principles of the system of care philosophy. These values and principles emphasize family-driven and youth-guided services, cultural and linguistic competence, effective and evidence-based interventions, and sustainability within a coordinated community-based service system.

The TA Partnership assists communities in developing and implementing a broad array of community- and strength-based services to improve outcomes for children with serious emotional disturbance and their families. The TA Partnership and our partners provide the following individualized TA, group TA, and TA that is accessible for all communities. 

Technical Assistance Coordinators

The Technical Assistance Coordinators (TA Coordinators) are family members and professionals who help currently funded system of care communities to design, develop, and implement effective systems of care. The TA Coordinators serve as the primary link between funded communities and the TA Partnership staff, the Center for Mental Health Services, consultants, and the national program partners, to promote a shared sense of vision and purpose across communities and a coordinated program of technical assistance. They coordinate calls with communities and conference calls with affinity groups across system of care sites to share common concerns and promote problem solving.
