Communities of Practice

The TA Partnership coordinates several Communities of Practice to facilitate communication among system of care communities on areas of common interest.  Each Community of Practice provides ongoing opportunities for communication, information sharing, problem solving, and collaboration among its participants. 

  • Child Welfare — Information and opportunities for sharing among system of care communities to help them better address the mental health and related needs of youth currently or formerly involved with the child welfare system.
  • Cultural and Linguistic Competence Community of Practice — Information and opportunities for sharing among system of care communities to help them enhance efforts to integrate and implement cultural and linguistic competence.
  • Early Childhood Community of Practice — Information and opportunities for sharing among system of care communities for better addressing the mental health needs of young children.
  • Family Involvement — Information and opportunities for sharing among system of care communities to help them implement true family involvement in the planning and provision of mental health services and supports for children, youth, and young adults.
  • Transition-Aged Youth Community of Practice — Information and opportunities for sharing among system of care communities for supporting youth with mental health challenges who are transitioning from the child service system to the adult service system.
