C-TECC is an innovative program established at the University of Delaware to advance clinical science in academic, public, and community settings. In partnership with multiple community agencies and organizations, C-TECC conducts research and evaluation, trains mental health providers in evidence-based practices, and builds capacity in mental health care systems. One of C-TECC's principal missions is training the next generation of mental health professionals. Post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate trainees learn to build productive working relationships with diverse community partners. Through collaboration with these partners, C-TECC faculty, professionals, and students work to apply scientific methods to the analysis and solution of challenges facing mental health services.
