Dr. Susan Neely-Barnes, associate professor in the department of Social Work, and assistant professors Dr. Elena Delavega and Dr. Susan Elswick have been awarded a Health Resources and Services Administration Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training for Professionals grant. The award is $473,892 during the first year, with a possible $1.4 million over a three-year period.


The grant will fund the establishment of the Mid-South Social Work Professional Development Initiative, which plans to train 102 students seeking a masters in social work. Students participating in the program will receive training while providing direct services to children, adolescents or transition-age adults.

The grant is part of a White House “Now is the Time” initiative. The goal is to train more behavioral-health professionals with a commitment to serve populations who are at risk or have developed a behavioral health disorder.
