UM and MSU Receive $1.9 Million Grant for Mental Health Training |  local news

Organizations UM students plan to partner with include Planned Parenthood, All Nations Health Center in Missoula, the VA Center in Helena, the YWCA, the Willard Alternative High School, the DeSmet School and Partnership Health, Kuntz said. For the duration of the grant, funding will be given to 72 MSU and UM graduate students to deliver and integrate professional services into existing institutions, agencies and clinics, according to a news release from MSU. “Although the state has many hardworking, effective mental health professionals working with our youth, there simply are not enough of them,” Mary-Ann Sontag Bowman, a UM social work associate professor and program director for the grant, said in the release.

It aims to equip students pursuing careers as psychiatric mental health and nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists, licensed social workers or licensed professional counselors with the skills needed to work with people affected by mental health issues. The Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training Program is funded by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.

“One of the most pressing challenges facing our state is access to mental health services,” UM spokesman Dave Kuntz said, adding he believes the behavioral health program will help combat this. The University of Montana and Montana State University are receiving a four-year, $1.9 million grant for a program that helps students learn how to serve individuals with mental health care needs.
