The National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health at the Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development is offering Training Institutes on improving mental health services for children and adolescents with or at risk for mental health challenges and their families. The biennial Training Institutes are organized in partnership with the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch of the federal Center for Mental Health Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and The Annie E. Casey Foundation. The Institutes are designed for a variety of individuals including state, tribal, territorial, and local administrators, planners, providers, clinicians, care managers, families, youth, advocates, managed care organizations, educators, evaluators, technical assistance providers, and others concerned with improving services for children and families. The system of care approach has been at the forefront of providing effective strategies and solutions to improve services and outcomes for children, adolescents, and young adults and their families. The system of care approach emphasizes home and community-based care, comprehensive and individualized services and supports, family-driven and youth-guided care, cultural and linguistic competence, services provided within the least restrictive environment, and coordination across child-serving systems. The 2012 Training Institutes will focus on innovative approaches, and how lessons learned from systems of care can guide efforts to improve children’s mental health service delivery in a dramatically changing environment.
