Synopsis: Transformation Facililtation (TF) is an intensive process undertaken by the Georgetown University National Technical Assistance Center for Children's Mental Health to assist states and territories in implementing strategic goals and activities to transform their mental health service systems for children and their families. TF is a process that is planful, accountable, intensive, and relationship based. Transformation Facilitators work with State Child Mental Health Directors to assess their service system, identify transformation goals and outcomes, develop action plans, leverage strategic opportunities and resources, facilitate alliances, and track accomplishments and outcomes. Facilitators serve multiple roles such as coaches, brokers, TA providers, and convenors; and use diverse TA strategies. This presentation will describe the TF process and experience, report on outcomes of an evaluation of this effort, and describe lessons learned and the implications for implementing a model of intensive TA.
