The New Hampshire MTSS-B Technical Assistance Center is a partnership between the Office of Social and Emotional Wellness (OSEW) at the New Hampshire Department of Education’s Bureau of Student Wellness & Nutrition and the Behavioral Health Improvement Institute (BHII) at Keene State College. OSEW provides opportunities for technical assistance, professional development, and training, and facilitates access to state and federal funding in support of student social and emotional wellness.
BHII works shoulder to shoulder with community partners to improve behavioral health practice and outcomes for underserved populations and is a go-to hub for behavioral health-related program evaluation and technical assistance in New Hampshire and beyond.
The NH MTSS-TA Center is funded by a state-level School Climate Transformation Grant awarded to OSEW from the U.S. Department of Education.
The MTSS-B TA Center supports New Hampshire schools and districts to build system capacity for implementing the Multi-Tiered System of Supports for Behavioral Health and Wellness (MTSS-B), a tiered prevention and school-community mental health integration framework that supports improved social-emotional and behavioral outcomes for students. The MTSS-B TA Center provides training, coaching, and technical assistance to New Hampshire school districts to support implementation of MTSS-B.
The MTSS-B TA Center is informed by a multi-sector, state-level MTSS-B Advisory Committee that provides input on MTSS-B strategies, planning efforts, and supports awareness and dissemination of the framework throughout New Hampshire schools and communities. The MAC meets bi-monthly; meeting minutes are available on the Advisory Committee page.
The MTSS-B TA Center is hosted by the Behavioral Health Improvement Institute (BHII) at Keene State College. BHII provides technical assistance, evaluation, and data support in the MTSS-B framework to the Office of Social Emotional Wellness (OSEW) at the NHDOE. OSEW houses a cadre of MTSS-B Consultants who offer training, consultation, ongoing coaching, and other forms of technical assistance to NH school districts.
