Integrated Behavioral Healthcare Workforce Development

Project Term: 24 months; Aug 2016 – Jul 2018
Grant Amount: $44,821

The University of Montana Department of Psychology, with Partnership Health Center (PHC) of Missoula and the Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana, will develop a field placement experience for behavioral health graduate students to address critical workforce development needs in Montana. The project will provide an initial, structured, “hands-on” training experience for students interested in learning how to provide integrated behavioral health services, while simultaneously addressing key health needs (including managing chronic pain and promoting health behavior change) in PHC’s underserved and “at risk” patient population. This project builds on a previous MHCF grant to the University to develop an integrated behavioral health curriculum.
