Project Summary: 

UW PBHJP is co-host of the National Wraparound Initiative (NWI), and the National Wraparound Implementation Center (NWIC). NWIC provides training and implementation support in 10 states on care coordination for youth with complex needs using a research-based Wraparound approach. The NWI and the UW Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team are also core partners in the federally-funded National Technical Assistance Network for Children’s Behavioral Health , which provides technical assistance to states and communities to expand and sustain evidence-based systems of care for children, youth, young adults, and their families.
