In 2018, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) launched a new approach to providing mental health technical assistance by establishing regional Mental Health Technology Transfer Centers. The Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network, includes a Network Coordinating Office (NCO), ten (10) MHTTC Regional Centers, a Tribal Affairs Center, and a Hispanic and Latino Center. Our collaborative network supports resource development and dissemination, training and technical assistance, and workforce development to the mental health field. The MHTTC Network works with organizations and treatment practitioners involved in the delivery of mental health services to strengthen their capacity to deliver effective evidence-based practices to individuals, including the full continuum of services spanning mental illness prevention, treatment, and recovery support.
 
The  Pacific Southwest MHTTC  serves the priorities of SAMHSA Region 9, including: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Northern Mariana Islands, and Palau. We offer a collaborative MHTTC model in order to provide training, technical assistance (TTA), and resource dissemination that supports the mental health workforce to adopt and effectively implement evidence-based practices (EBPs) across the mental health continuum of care. The Pacific Southwest MHTTC also provides TTA and resources at a national level on specialty area focused on  youth and young adults of transition age . In 2018‑2019, the MHTTC will focus on  school-based mental health.
