A Message from Director James R. Wotring

Director Jim WotringWelcome to the Georgetown University National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health (TA Center) website.  The TA Center is dedicated to improving behavioral health systems and services for children and their families all across the country.

Our website provides many resources to assist individuals, organizations, and systems in building comprehensive community based service delivery systems for children with behavioral health needs and their families.  Please contact us 202-687-5000 or childrensmh@georgetown.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
