CMHC Behavioral Health Recruitment Fund

The CMHC BH Recruitment Fund aims to increase the number of psychiatrists and nurse practitioners (NPs) with prescribing privileges working at community mental health centers (CMHCs). The program accomplishes this goal by providing recruitment packages to CMHCs to enable them to overcome some of the obstacles known to deter psychiatrists and NPs from taking on roles in community settings.

Applications for the CMHC BH Recruitment Fund were due April 18, 2019 by 5 PM EST. This application cycle is now closed.
