Annual Dr. Lonnie E. Mitchell HBCU Behavioral Health Policy Academy
The Annual Dr. Lonnie E. Mitchell HBCU Behavioral Health Policy Academy, sponsored by SAMHSA, continues the legacy and work of the late Dr. Lonnie E. Mitchell, an esteemed educator, administrator, policy advisory and psychotherapist. Dr. Mitchell envisioned bringing cutting- edge substance abuse and mental health research, treatment, prevention, policy development, career development and health disparity issues to the general public and HBCU community. A major focus of the Academy is to equip students, faculty, staff and administrators with the knowledge, tools and resources around policy development and implementation; thus, enhancing their skills to: review identified behavioral health priorities specific to their campus; develop and implement specific behavioral health activities and identify opportunities for collaboration and networking in creating sustainable behavioral health policy changes on their campus. Each year, up to 15 HBCUs who are HBCU-CFE mini-grantees, are selected to participate in this two and a half day event. Each HBCU mini-grantee is invited to send a team of six which may include faculty, staff, administrators and students.
