The Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACHBA) has been named as the State of Ohio partner for the Great Lakes Region 5 Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC). The region 5 effort is being led by the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The MHTTC represents SAMHSA’s new approach to building a national system of technical assistance (TA) and training for community organizations and treatment provider agencies, to enhance treatment and recovery services, and implement new evidence-based practices to best serve individuals experiencing a mental illness.
In addition to the main MHTCC project, OACBHA will be working to enable recipient communities/schools to better support youth and young adults of school age through the MHTTC School-Based Mental Health Wellness Supplement. In partnership with school districts across Ohio, the goals of this project include:
OACBHA will be coordinating regional meetings with school administrators, Public Children Service Organizations, stakeholders and other entities. Together, they will identify potential opportunities to infuse trauma-informed care practices in Ohio’s schools and child caring organizations; and determine if future training and technical assistance is wanted based upon their school’s/communities unique needs.
