Program Summary

Program Summary

The purpose of this program is to develop and expand the substance abuse and mental health workforce. Following their training, students supported by these funds provide services to children, adolescents, and transitional-age youth at risk for developing or who have a recognized behavioral health disorder. 

Special emphasis is on training to meet the needs of children, adolescents, and transitional-age youth (16 to 25 years old) who are at risk for mental illness, substance abuse, and suicide, because they are also among the least likely to seek continuous help. Applicants must emphasize prevention and clinical intervention for those (a) at risk of developing mental and substance use disorders; and (b) the involvement of families in the prevention and treatment of behavioral health conditions.

Match is required for only doctoral-level Psychology Internships, where applicable, to cover any student stipend costs beyond $20,000 per geographic reimbursement requirements set by the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).
