MA Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Fellowship Program
The MassLeague is administering a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) that establishes a PMHNP Fellowship Program for 10 Fellows at up to five Community Health Centers (CHCs) in MA. Selected community health center (CHC) applicants will be awarded $35,000 for a six-month PMHNP Fellowship program and $55,000 per Fellow. All MA community health centers (CHCs) are eligible and encouraged to apply. The MA PMHNP Fellowship Program aims to recruit, train, and retain more PMHNPs at CHCs and will allow health centers to increase much-needed psychiatric capacity.
Eligible CHCs selected for an award through this competitive process will go through a three month planning period followed by a six-month Fellowship from January 4, 2022, through June 30, 2022.
The MA PMHNP Fellowship Program is one of four components of a larger statewide initiative to increase Community Health Access to Mental Health Providers (CHAMP). Funding for this Program and the other CHAMP components is through the 2021 Massachusetts budget (Section 4513-2020 of FY 2021 budget) to increase behavioral health services for children, adolescents, adults, and families in MA.This application cycle is now open.
Applications for the PMHNP Fellowship Program are due August 27, 2021.
