New Student Stipend Opportunity - Mason Community-Academic Partnerships in Behavioral Health (CAP-BH)
The GMU Social Work Department is pleased to announce a new initiative called Mason Community-Academic Partnerships in Behavioral Health (CAP-BH). Funded by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA), this program is designed to increase the number and quality of MSW professionals with specialized behavioral health training to address the complex issues that arise from untreated trauma and behavioral health issues. Students in the program are offered opportunities to receive specialized training and skills, while also receiving a stipend for participation.
The Social Work Department will be recruiting specialization year students enrolled in the MSW on-campus program to participate in CAP-BH program. To address questions, there will be three informational sessions to briefly overview the program and find out if you are eligible to participate in the CAP-BH program.
