Technical Assistance

The Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health (TA Partnership) helped 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 assisted 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 provided the following individualized TA, group TA, and TA that is accessible for all communities. 


Webinars are live Web-based learning opportunities that incorporate the use of the telephone (for the audio portion) and the Internet (for viewing the PowerPoint presentation on-line). Webinars promote peer-to-peer exchange and knowledge sharing among system of care communities on strategies for addressing common barriers to system of care development and implementation. The TA Partnership provides a master calendar of Web-enabled conference calls on topics of interest to communities.
