Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health

Helping communities build systems of care to meet the mental health needs of children, youth, and families.

The Technical Assistance Partnership

The Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health (TA Partnership), a collaboration between the National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health and the American Institutes for Research, provides technical assistance to system of care communities that are currently funded through the Comprehensive Community Mental Health Services for Children and their Families Program.

Technical Assistance Partnership

The TA Partnership was created to assist these communities to build infrastructure that helps them create a community system of care. Since its inception, the TA Partnership has been a national resource of renowned experts who work closely with local communities to strengthen family leadership and advocacy. We provide expert consultation, communities of practice, FAQs, a monthly newsletter, and other resources to communities to improve the quality of life for children and youth with mental health problems and their families.

Learn more about the TA Partnership, our program partners, and the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch.
