Minority Fellowship Program: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Centers for Mental Health Services (CMHS), Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), and Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) are accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2018 Minority Fellowship Program (Short Title: MFP). The purpose of this program is to: (1) increase the knowledge of mental and/or substance use disorder behavioral health professionals on issues related to prevention, treatment, and recovery support for individuals who are from racial and ethnic minority populations and have a mental or substance use disorder; (2) improve the quality of mental and substance use disorder prevention and treatment services delivered to racial and ethnic minority populations; and (3) increase the number of culturally competent mental and substance use disorders professionals who teach, administer services, conduct research, and provide direct mental and/or substance use disorder services to racial and ethnic minority populations. It is expected that MFP will reduce behavioral health disparities and improve health care outcomes for racial and ethnic minority populations.
