Graduate Intern Stipend Program



The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), also known as Proposition 63, was passed by California’s voters in November 2004. Workforce Education and Training (WET) is an important MHSA component intended to fund strategies that address occupational shortages in the public mental health field through the development of academic pipelines, internships and financial incentive programs.

The Graduate Intern Stipend Program is a financial incentive strategy that is included in the BHCS WET Plan. This program is designed to recruit individuals into BHCS county-operated programs and contracted, behavioral health community-based organizations (CBOs), thus creating a public mental health workforce pipeline.

We are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Graduate Intern Stipend Award cycle.

The application deadline is: Thursday, October 12, 2017. Applications will not be accepted after this date.
