Do you want to help shape the future of the behavioral health workforce in California? We are looking for nonprofits and county-operated providers who offer behavioral health services and care deeply about mentoring the next generation of BH professionals.

Funding is now available for such organizations to develop and implement an in-house Mentored Internship Program (MIP) to assist in the treatment and recovery of patients with BH disorders. This is an incredible opportunity to strengthen and build your, and the state’s, workforce.

The MIP funding is part of the BHWD efforts of the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). This RFA contains information about the MIP, such as background, legal, fiscal, and program requirements for applicants. Eligibility criteria and application instructions are included. Apply today!

An informational webinar was held January 20 for potential applicants to learn more about the MIP RFA and ask questions.
