Working for the Mental Health
of ALL Children and Youth.
The National Training and Technical Assistance Center for Child, Youth, and Family Mental Health (NTTAC) works to ensure all young people and families get the support they need to thrive.
NTTAC is a SAMHSA-funded initiative to increase the access to, effectiveness of, and dissemination of evidence-based mental health services for young people (ages 0-21) and their families, including young people experiencing serious mental illness or serious emotional disturbance (SMI/SED).
NTTAC supports a system of care that is trauma informed and person centered. NTTAC is committed to equity, inclusion, and diversity, and we promote authentic partnership with youth and families. Learn more about our Team.
NTTAC services are designed for mental health professionals, primary care providers, peers, educators, systems leaders, child welfare system professionals, juvenile justice staff, advocates, and others who work with youth and families.
