The Training Center, formerly the Mental Health Services Training Collaborative, assists the Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) in planning, organizing and implementing conferences and training activities to support the continued growth and development of the public behavioral health system.

The Training Center (TC) re​presents a collaboration between BHA and the University’s Division of Services Research designed to serve the training and service development needs of Maryland’s mental health delivery system. Reflecting BHA’s commitment to education and training, the Training Center ensures that the University’s emphasis on research and implementing evidence-based treatment is closely interwoven with the needs and growth of the public mental health system.

Additionally, the TC monitors training funds that are awarded each year to consumer and family advocacy agencies for a variety of programs that promote awareness and understanding on a broad range of mental health issues. It also monitors the overall quality of all sponsored training activities.
