  • Behind the Terms: Discussions of Key Terms in Behavioral Health
    This section provides users with the “stories” behind specific key terms in behavioral health that may have different meanings and signify different concepts, depending on the context.
  • The NREPP website has been redesigned and improved and now offers many new features. These include a new Learning Center, with a Developers Corner featuring a video from a noted program developer, information on program planning, evaluation, and implementation, as well as many new valuable resources. The Learning Center also features a Practice-Based Evidence section that addresses selected traditional and emerging programs and practices that can complement and enrich the findings about NREPP's evidence-based programs and practices.
  • The new, more rigorous review process has resulted in improved quality of the reviews and utility of information that NREPP provides its users. Newly reviewed programs display new program ratings -- “effective,” “promising,” and “no effects.” These ratings convey easy-to-understand information to users who are looking to find and implement evidence-based programs that can address their needs. All existing NREPP programs will be re-reviewed over the next 3 years under this new review process. Read more about the new Review Process
