Information on Northwest Leaders in Behavioral Health Program (NLBHP)

The primary objective of the Northwest Leaders in Behavioral Health Program (NLBHP) is to recruit and train a diverse cadre of outstanding social work practitioners, prepared for behavioral health prevention and clinical intervention with those at risk of developing or who have a recognized behavioral health disorder, particularly in rural, tribal, medically underserved and vulnerable populations.

This innovative program is designed to address the tremendous need for this type of training by providing students with stipends and a curriculum focused on behavioral health across the lifespan. The federally funded training program also includes a specialized field placement to enhance professional learning in the areas of behavioral health prevention, intervention and treatment.
