Now Is the Time: Minority Fellowship Program-Youth

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2014 for the Now Is the Time: Minority Fellowship Program-Youth (NITT- MFP-Y) grant program. The NITT-MFP-Y is part of the President’s Plan, Now Is the Time, to increase access to mental health services for youth in America. This program expands the focus of the current MFP program to support master’s level trained behavioral health providers in the fields of psychology, social work, professional counseling, marriage and family therapy, and nursing. The purpose of this grant program is to reduce health disparities and improve behavioral health care outcomes for racially and ethnically diverse populations by increasing the number of culturally competent master’s level behavioral health professionals serving children, adolescents, and populations in transition to adulthood (aged 16 – 25) in an effort to increase access to, and quality of, behavioral health care for this age group.
