Foundations in Behavioral Health Training Series

The Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care Technical Assistance Center (UBHC-TAC) offers an annual series of trainings geared toward enhancing the core competencies and foundational skills of the behavioral health workforce for New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) funded programs. Developed in alliance with a variety of community stakeholders, this series focusses on practical applications of the fundamental skills necessary to implement evidence-based and promising practices for individuals recovering from mental health and substance use disorders. This series is offered in three cycles between September and June across the Northern, Central, and Southern regions of the state. Target audiences include Integrated Case Management (ICMS), Projects for Assistance in Transitioning from Homelessness (PATH), Supported Housing, Justice Involved Services (JIS), Involuntary Outpatient Commitment (IOC), Early Intervention Support Services (EISS), and Partial Hospital/Care program staff.
