We are pleased to announce that Morehouse School of Medicine has received a Notice of Award from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to continue as theHistorically Black Colleges and Universities-Center for Excellence (HBCU-CFE) in Behavioral Health. We look forward to working with all Historically Black Colleges and Universities to promote student behavioral health, work force development and student retention.
The HBCU-CFE will again support a Behavioral Health Capacity Expansion Sub-Award program. The purpose of this program is to promote opportunities for HBCU institutions to foster behavioral health careers through internships; to expand knowledge of culturally appropriate, evidence-based and emerging best practices; to expand screening and referral services for students at risk for behavioral health disorders; and to support educational activities around behavioral health and prevention strategies.
All HBCUs are eligible to apply for the Behavioral Health Capacity Expansion Mini-Grant. Click Here for a Copy of the RFA.
