MINORITY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
For the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, DSG has established a Coordinating Center for the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP). The Coordinating Center increases the effectiveness and accountability of the MFP program.
The center facilitates the tracking, networking, and effectiveness of all MFP Fellows and their grantee sponsoring organizations—the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Nurses Association, the Council on Social Work Education, the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, NAADAC: the Association for Addiction Professionals, and the NBCC Foundation.
It provides training and technical assistance to help address issues in minority mental health and substance abuse, and to reduce disparities, through the training of MFP Fellows in graduate and postgraduate work that can increase their skills and their contributions, through services, administration, teaching, and research.
