Community of Practice: Capacity Building Through a Lens of Racial Equity and Healing in Infant and Early Childhood Systems of Care
We are pleased to offer this four-part learning series for Infant and Early Childhood practitioners, leaders, family members, and professionals from related sectors. The series will help participants understand how to begin building supportive racial healing spaces, reflect on ways to be more culturally humble, work on issues of equity, address power imbalances, and engage in critical self-reflection required to deeply collaborate on this work.

Youth Engagement Strategies in Higher Education Settings – Community of Practice Series
Youth Coordinators, local high school or college campus representatives, and Healthy Transitions/System of Care grantees will come together to discuss strategies to engage young people in behavioral health awareness activities including training opportunities that connect young people to peers, resources, community, and causes. Participants will learn strategies and hear directly what works and what doesn’t from stakeholders in the Tapestry Initiative, a well-established system of care community in Chautauqua County, New York. All strategies discussed will be applicable nationwide in various communities and grant sites.
Words Matter Discussion Series
Join us for the Words Matter series where we engage in open and authentic discussions about the impact of common terminology used in child-serving systems with those that are directly affected. Our goal is to illuminate how the terms we use can influence perception, approach, and practice, as well as explore alternative language as a means of intentionally shifting how we view and interact with youth, families, and each other.
Consult the Clinician Team Office Hours
“Consult the Clinician Team” is an open forum for asking the mental health clinicians on the NTTAC Clinical Practice Transformation Team questions about topics related to children’s, youth, and family mental health. The discussion will center on understanding how a clinician’s role in a system of care can be better utilized. The forum is appropriate for questions about returning to school, barriers to care, clinician interests in mental health topics and system of care, etc.
Youth Coordinator Office Hours
A virtual space for Youth Engagement Specialists and Youth Coordinators, Youth Program Managers, Youth Peers, etc. to connect for in-depth discussions, connection with peers in the work, opportunity to request and share resources and best practices, and receive coaching support from Youth MOVE facilitators.
Collegiate Mental Health: What We Know and Where Are We Going?
Although many college and university students will experience a mental health challenge, institutions of higher education are rarely equipped to adequately meet these needs. Evidence suggests that counseling centers are frequently understaffed, underfunded, and overwhelmed. In this presentation, Dr. Brett Scofield will share findings from ongoing data collection efforts about the experiences of students and providers on college and university campuses.
Family Exchange: Peer Networking for Family Leaders who Foster and Support Family Engagement
Whether you are new to your role or you have been in the family movement for many years, the Family Exchange is a peer networking group to share experiences, innovative and effective practices, skills and knowledge, solution to barriers and challenges, and key information supporting your role as family leaders.
