The Technical Assistance Center
As an integral part of the Behavioral Research and Training Institute, the Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care Technical Assistance Center (UBHC-TAC) enthusiastically provides training and consultation services to behavioral health care staff and the people who receive behavioral health services throughout the State of New Jersey. Our team of trainers and consultants focus on the implementation of person centered, culturally sensitive, evidence-based practices in order to build upon existing capacity to enhance quality of life for the people we serve.
The UBHC-TAC is contracted by the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), with training and consultation priorities set in collaboration with DMHAS team members. Community service providers and people receiving behavioral health services may contact the TAC directly at (732) 235-9290 or firstname.lastname@example.org to clarify eligibility for our services.
