NATSAP Recaps 2020 Election Results

What a crazy election year this has been. NATSAP always strives to keep members up to date with the most relevant information when it comes to government advocacy. Here we have outlined election results for the Presidency, House of Representatives, Senate, and Governors.

In the article, you will also find relevant legislation including bills on mental health and
COVID-19. The GAP (Government Advocacy Pages) will also be updated by the end of the
year with the most up to date information on legislation by state, information on the bills
themselves, representatives backing that legislation, and how to contact your elected officials.

As always, please reach out to us at the home office if you have any questions!

The Golden Thread is HERE!

Mike Petree (Petree Consulting) recently held a webinar on “The Nuts and Bolts of the Golden Thread”. The Golden Thread is a comprehensive, integrated research software program that will weave its way with the client through all treatment processes. As a secondary benefit, it would join together the multiple professionals found in IECA, TCA, NATSAP, OBHC, and other supporting programs. Involving educational consultants will result in access to collecting data on clients who seek consulting services but do not end up using a program. Learn how you can be a part of the future of research at NATSAP!

NATSAP’s Latest Partnership with TEACH-NOW

Guiding the Way

NATS_Logo_FullYou might have noticed that things look a little different with NATSAP these days. As we approach our 20 year anniversary, the NATSAP Board undertook a rebranding project where they reviewed where NATSAP has been and where it is heading. Over a series of meetings with our Board, Outsource Marketing, and our Public Relations Rebranding Subcommittee, we have crafted a new message and look for NATSAP. Although Supporting Programs, Healing Families is still at the core of what we do, we are also Guiding The Way.

If the category of Therapeutic Schools and Programs were a wheel, NATSAP would be the hub, and its members the spokes. NATSAP guides the entire category (members, families, youth) by “turning” toward advocacy, standards, innovation, and growth.

NATSAP is the friend you turn to when you have a difficult problem; the mentor you meet with for advice; the boss you look to for standards; the advocate you trust to represent your cause; the resource you look to for networking and opportunities.

 

Who we are and who we’re for

NATSAP is an association of therapeutic schools and programs assisting youth and young adults with emotional and behavioral difficulties.

How we’re different

Through its conferences, legislation efforts, online directory, and research, NATSAP serves members as a guide for growth, and helps parents navigate the rough waters of adolescent mental health and disabilities.

Why that matters

Members are given support and guidance; parents, resources and options; and youth and young adults, hope and renewed life.

As we unveil our new logo, our new tag line, and (in the next few months) our new website, we invite you to join us in Guiding The Way for members, families, and youth that we serve.
