Network Coordinating Office

Stanford Medicine Logo


Stanford University School of Medicine’s Center for Dissemination and Implementation (CDI) houses the Network Coordinating Office which serves as the focal point and provides leadership, infrastructure, and support to the MHTTC Network.
Our Goals
  • Establish a Network-wide approach, based on implementation science, to accelerate mental health evidence-based practice adoption and implementation.
  • Increase opportunities for the Network to heighten the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce.
  • Develop strategic alliances for the Network among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policy makers, family members, and consumers of mental health services.
  • Increase access to publicly available, free of charge, training and technical assistance to the mental health field.

Services We Offer
  • Assist the Network in using implementation science based training and technical assistance strategies that can lead to a more significant impact on the provision of mental health services.
  • Provide the Network with infrastructure supports that are coordinated across the three technology transfer center (TTC) networks.
  • Lead the Network in workforce development activities including activities aimed at upgrading standards of professional practice for mental health professionals and developing strategies and materials to enhance recruitment and retention of mental health practitioners.
  • Develop a comprehensive school based mental health curricula and national learning collaborative.
