The National Family Support Technical Assistance Center (NFSTAC) is ready to launch, and they’re holding Meet-and-Greet sessions for the project led by the National Federation of Families.
Families as Allies is excited not only that this resource is coming online to help families, but also that our very own Henry Moore is on the advisory board for NFSTAC.
From the announcement:
We’re pleased to invite you to a Meet and Greet for the first SAMHSA-funded National Family Support Technical Assistance Center (NFSTAC). The NFSTAC will provide resources, training and technical assistance to families/caregivers and the providers and organizations who support them. This includes mental health and substance use information and lifespan resources, training for families and professionals, connection to family support services, expanded development of the Family Peer Specialist workforce and technical assistance for organizations.
Our work will be driven by families – who are the experts in the care of their loved ones – and professionals who are familiar with families’ needs and the challenges they face. Participants will receive a follow-up survey so they can share their ideas about how the NFSTAC can best support families who have children – of any age – that experience mental health and/or substance use challenges during their lifetime.
Four different dates and times are available for the Meet-and-Greet sessions:
- January 12th, 10:00 – 10:30 am ET
