New Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training program at Case Western Reserve University
The Case Western Reserve University Community-Based Integrated Behavioral Health Training Program aims to expand access to critically needed behavioral health services by increasing the number of qualified professionals from diverse backgrounds with competency to provide high quality, trauma informed prevention and treatment services. The proposed program will significantly expand and enhance existing student training while providing opportunities for the development of increased BH expertise in community providers and academic faculty. This collaborative training program involves the Mandel School, the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and the MetroHealth System.
