This notice solicits applications for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) Program. The BHWET Program aims to develop and expand the behavioral health workforce serving populations across the lifespan, including rural and medically underserved areas.  The BHWET Program places special emphasis on establishing or expanding meaningful, longitudinal internships or field placement programs in behavioral health that include interprofessional training for students/interns, faculty, and field supervisors to provide quality behavioral health services. Grant recipients will help close the gap in access to behavioral health care services by establishing partnerships with a broad range of organizations and community partners to ensure a wide recruitment of students, opportunities for field placements, career development, and provide job placement services.  Students will be trained in effective behavioral health treatment modalities at interprofessional and team-based care field placement sites or through internships that are working toward or have instituted the integration of behavioral health and primary care.  These efforts will aid to increase the number of adequately prepared behavioral health providers serving populations across the lifespan, including  persons in rural, vulnerable, and/or medically-underserved communities.
