About the Rocky Mountain MST Network

An Emphasis on Evidence

The Rocky Mountain MST Network (RMMN) improves child and youth mental health and reduces juvenile-justice and child-welfare involvement by increasing the availability of evidence-based interventions for families. We support communities in adoption of new practices, including identifying needs, matching needs to potential programs, creating implementation plans, and exploring opportunities to generate new knowledge about implementation of evidence-based practices.


The Rocky Mountain MST Network, formerly known as the Center for Effective Interventions (CEI), was founded in 2000 by David Bernstein. Originally based at Metropolitan State University of Denver, the Center joined the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work (DU GSSW) in 2015. In July 2021, the Center changed its name to Rocky Mountain MST Network and moved to the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus as part of the Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect.

Collaborating for Better Outcomes

Our partners and collaborators — including MST Services (Multisystemic Therapy) — share our belief in the importance of effective intervention as a key element of social work.  

MST Telehealth Pilot

In collaboration with CDHS & the Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab, the Rocky Mountain MST Network launched a 2-year pilot program to evaluate the implementation of a telehealth-enhanced service delivery model of Multisystemic Therapy (MST). This MST modification blends the traditional MST in-person treatment with telehealth delivery options that enhance flexibility and support reaching families who might otherwise not have access to MST
