The Annapolis Coalition is pleased to announce its participation as a partner in a successful application by The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (NCCBH) to establish the National Training and Technical Assistance Center for Primary and Behavioral Healthcare Integration.

In addition to the work on the TA Center, The Coalition will join together with our long-term partners in the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) to provide leadership on a major supplement to the Technical Assistance Center, which has a focus on behavioral health workforce development.

"We view this as a significant opportunity to help ensure that behavioral health workforce issues remain a priority in the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010," said Coalition Board Chair Gail Stuart.

The award, a cooperative agreement funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Health Resources and Services Administration, is renewable annually for up to five years.
