Behavioral Health Workforce Training Program-II Fellows

Behavioral Health describes the connection between our behaviors and our overall health and well-being. The Behavioral Health Workforce Training Program II (BHWTP-II) is a Fellows Program designed for AAMU MSW students who are entering SWK 680 (Field Placement II), and who wish to enhance their skills and professional development in the area of behavioral and integrative health. Funded by HRSA (Health Resources Services Administration), this innovative program is designed to develop and expand the behavioral health workforce serving populations across the lifespan--including rural and medically underserved areas. As an AAMU MSW student, you are well-placed to address the nation’s need for qualified, highly skilled social work professionals. The BHWTP-II Fellows Program can help you open the door to great opportunities to assist our most vulnerable communities and populations. This program is designed for students in both Community Mental Health and Family Child Welfare concentrations.
