The awards support training across the behavioral health provider spectrum including community health workers, social workers, psychology interns and post-doctoral residents. These programs encourage an integrated approach to training through academic and community partnerships. These workforce investments help clinicians to provide integrated behavioral health care and treatment services in underserved communities.

  • Behavioral Health Workforce Expansion Training (BHWET)
    • Professional
      • The Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) program is exclusively for MSW students in their final year of study, including advanced-standing students. Students must participate in behavioral health education workshops and activities beyond the classroom and be engaged in an approved clinical field placement. In exchange for participating in this program, students will be eligible to receive a $10,000 stipend. 
      • Preference is given to students in a clinical setting working directly with children through age 25. Other priorities include students with field placements in rural locations, criminal justice settings, family preservation settings, medically underserved settings, or integrated healthcare settings. There will be more interest than the 29 slots that we have available, so the program is highly selective.
