Funding Announcement: Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training for Paraprofessionals

"The purpose of this program is to develop and expand the substance abuse and mental health workforce who, following their training, will focus on children, adolescents, and transitional-age youth at risk for developing or who have developed a recognized behavioral health disorder.  Special emphasis is on training to meet the needs of transitional-age persons 16 to 25 years old who are at risk for mental illness, substance abuse and suicide, and among the least likely to seek continuous help. Applicants must emphasize prevention and clinical intervention and treatment for those at risk for engaging in harmful behaviors, including violence, and the involvement of families in the prevention and treatment of behavioral health conditions.

"HRSA, accepting applications for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, is seeking to train a total of 1,800 additional behavioral health professionals and 1,700 paraprofessionals per year through this grant program."
