The HBCU-Center for Excellence is pleased to announce we received a notice of award from SAMSHA to continue to serve as the HBCU-CFE in Behavioral Health, thanks for your support and contributions! Information pertaining to upcoming behavioral health opportunities is forthcoming!

The HBCU Center for Excellence (HBCU-CFE) in Behavioral Health at Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) is funded through a Cooperative Agreement with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) Grant Number TI-023447.

The HBCU-CFE in Behavioral Health was established as a result of the accomplishments of the HBCU National Resource Center (HBCU-NRC) for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Infrastructure Development and the HBCU-CFE in Substance Abuse and Mental Health, also funded by SAMHSA.

The goals of the HBCU-CFE are to:

  • Promote student behavioral health to positively impact student retention
  • Expand campus service capacity, including the provision of culturally appropriate behavioral health resources
  • Facilitate best practices dissemination, foster student leadership, and behavioral health workforce development
The HBCU-CFE, through its established HBCU network, will target all 105 HBCUs and provide ongoing technical assistance and on-site and distance learning opportunities. The HBCU-CFE will advance these goals by building and strengthening collaborative partnerships
