Linehan Institute/Behavioral Tech Ambassadors are intensively trained mental health providers who collaborate with the Linehan Institute/Behavioral Tech to identify training opportunities in their region in addition to assisting with organizing efforts in their area. These ambassadors are individuals with knowledge of their region and its needs, as well as the ability to bring key stakeholders to the table. Furthermore, they are able to provide the Linehan Institute/Behavioral Tech with astute consultation about how to proceed with dissemination and implementation efforts. Depending on the background and training of the Ambassador, they may be directly involved in corresponding trainings in their region.
