The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is pleased to be offering its seventh annual training for community-based organizations, NNEDLearn 2017, an opportunity for NNED members to learn and implement evidence-based, adapted, and culturally-specific behavioral health practices. This training model includes an on-site training and follow-up virtual coaching sessions. The on-site training will be held March 26–29, 2017 at the Tamaya Hyatt in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico.

What are the requirements for participation?

SAMHSA will cover travel and lodging for teams to participate in the Learn stage (on-site training in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico). NNED membership is required for NNEDLearn participation. If you are not a NNED member you can sign up now, please allow 24-48 hours for your account to be activated.
