Complete a TIN Interest Form

This is the starting point! Organizations interested in joining the Tech Innovation Network (TIN) should complete and interest form. Once we receive an interest form, a team member will reach out to invite you to an information session, which typically occur every second Wednesday of the month at noon. In the info session you will learn about the benefits of joining the TIN, what support to expect from our team, and more about how to join.

The TIN Application

After your organization attends an information session, our team will send an email inviting you complete an application to join the Tech Innovation Network (TIN). Completing the application helps us learn more about your organization, confirms your organization's continued interest in joining the TIN, and your readiness to explore technology in mental health.

If the Tech Innovation Network (TIN) seems like a good fit for your organization then you will move forward with the onboarding process. This includes completing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), as well as participating in a TIN onboarding training.

Completing the MOU - this an important step in onboarding and assures that your organization has all the information about our TIN partnership. Before receiving equipment and content as a part of the TIN, all organizations are required to read and sign the memorandum of understanding.

Onboarding Training - this training will provide your organization with all the needed information to get started in the TIN, including an in-depth orientation to technology equipment provided through the TIN.

The TIN is ever evolving and there are always new opportunities organizations could potentially engage in. A few activities we ask all organizations to regularly participate in include monthly meetings and quarterly surveys.

TIN Monthly Meetings - monthly meetings are held virtually and bring together different organizations who are utilizing technology in similar ways. This is an opportunity for your organization to learn, share, and collaborate with others on how technology can be leveraged to address mental health needs.

Quarterly Surveys - part of being in the TIN is letting us know what you are doing with technology, and the support your organization needs in implementing technology to address mental health. We want to make this easy to do and ask that quarterly, organizations complete a survey sharing this information.
