MFT Program partners with County for Systems of Care Grant

The Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently announced awards of the Systems of Care grants and Antioch’s Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) program is a key partner in the Cheshire County award.  The project will implement a System of Care in New Hampshire’s Monadnock Region to improve access and delivery of mental health services to youth and families. As a partner in the Mondadnock Systems of Care, students and faculty from the Applied Psychology Department will provide training and clinical support to the region on trauma, family therapy, and home-based services. Dr. Janet Robertson, with several others, were involved in the planning grant, as well, implementing a family-centered qualitative research approach to the assessment on family needs.  This award will contribute to the establishment of a clinical training center within the Applied Psychology Department to meet the needs of the local community.
