These three year grants will be used to train a new wave of behavioral health care providers.

The program focuses on increasing the number of culturally competent behavioral health professionals available in underserved racially and ethnically diverse communities.

"As the prominence of behavioral health care needs grows in America it is essential that we grow and maintain a skilled workforce," said Pamela S. Hyde, J.D.

"The Minority Fellowship Program grants help ensure that the behavioral health workforce remains strong, cutting-edge and attuned to the needs of communities where disparities in access and quality services remain challenging," said Hyde.

The awardees named were American Psychiatric Association, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, American Nurses Association, Council on Social Work Education, and American Psychological Association.
