AUNE’s CMHC Program Helps Address Opiod Crisis

Antioch University New England’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) program has successfully completed a two-year-long initiative sponsored by the Federal Health Services and Resources Administration (HRSA) to train students and local clinicians to meet the growing needs created by the opiate crisis. AUNE’s program was among the nine programs nationally who were awarded the Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) grant through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services HRSA Division.

The CMHC program received $283,306 to provide addictions counseling training and supervised clinical experience to 20 Master’s degree students completing their internships at sites within the Monadnock region. In addition, the initiative devoted resources to address the training needs of the current workforce by concurrently providing the curriculum to local clinicians and clinical supervisors.

AUNE’s CMHC program offers an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with on-campus or low-residency delivery options, as well as a Certificate in Addictions Counseling to educate and train students and practicing professionals.
