Grants to USA and Territories IHEs and mental health nonprofits for programs to expand training of behavioral health specialists. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to improve community access to essential behavioral health services, particularly for adolescents and children, through training and placing additional paraprofessionals.
The purpose of the BHWET Program for Paraprofessionals is to develop and expand community-based experiential training to increase the supply of students preparing to become peer support specialists and other behavioral health-related paraprofessionals while also improving distribution of a quality behavioral health workforce. A special focus is placed on the knowledge and understanding of the specific concerns of children, adolescents, and transitional-aged youth in high need and high demand areas at risk for behavioral health disorders.
Combatting the opioid crisis is an HHS priority, and advancing the competencies of the health workforce is a HRSA priority. The BHWET program addresses these priorities by advancing the behavioral health competencies of the paraprofessional workforce across disciplines, and increasing the behavioral health workforce in high need and high demand areas, through collaboration with community based partnerships.
