We will welcome other examples and discussion across participants on other ACT teams as well. Rescheduled from original data of January 3, 2022.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
The Northwest MHTTC, in collaboration with the Institute for Best Practices at the University of North Carolina, co-facilitates a bi-monthly consultation call with ACT teams and ACT stakeholders. Each meeting consists of a mini-didactic training on a topic of relevance and interest to ACT teams (at times circling back to topics related to navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and related issues as they come up), as well as opportunities to pose consultation questions and learn from other ACT teams and their shared experiences within ACT.
