The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) has recently released a funding opportunity announcement for Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral Treatment (SBIRT) training programs. Led by a team of experts in healthcare, nursing, social work, and counseling, these educational initiatives are designed to supervise and promote the adoption of SBIRT practices throughout the healthcare delivery system. Eligible organizations include medical residency programs, along with public and private universities and colleges who are or have been affiliated with programs in nursing, social work, or counseling. Preference will be given to agencies that provide training for performing SBIRT methods in both didactic and practical settings, while serving disadvantaged populations who have previously been affected by healthcare disparities. SAMHSA anticipates distributing twelve awards of up to $314,661 annually for project periods (beginning October 1, 2013) of up to three years. Applications are due June 5, 2013.
