The federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently announced the recipients of four-year grants under its Systems of Care Expansion funding program. Antioch’s Center for Behavioral Health Innovation (BHI) was a partner in two of the awarded applications.
The first project will implement a System of Care in New Hampshire’s Monadnock Region, with Cheshire County as the grant recipient, and the other will be a statewide effort, in partnership with the NH Board of Education. BHI will provide program evaluation and technical support for both projects.
These two projects represent a substantial scaling up the Systems of Care work in which Antioch has been involved to date. We’re very excited to be part of this wave of innovation in our State, for addressing the compelling needs of emotionally distressed youth and families.
Antioch University New England’s Center for Behavioral Health Innovation is dedicated to the design and improvement of behavioral health practice, and works with community partners to improve the health and well-being of underserved populations.
