Trauma Based Behavioral Health Fellowship (TBBHF)

About Us

TBBHF is a concurrent 26-week training program for social work graduate students during their final year of the MSW program. The Fellowship focuses on trauma informed understanding and practice of behavioral health. All trainers hail from the community with an interdisciplinary and interprofessional background. The selection, training and supervising for the fellowship are all done by community leaders in association with the program director. Students chosen for this fellowship receive a $10,000 federal stipend from Health Resources and Services Administration(HRSA), a subsidiary of The Department of Health and Human Services(DHHS). School of Social Work had obtained this grant funding through a nationally competitive process. For more information, please contact

Congratulations to the 24 incoming fellows for successfully earning a position in the Trauma Based Behavioral Health Fellowship!

We would also like to thank Program Coordinator Ginger Meyer and a six panel group of community leaders for their time and due diligence in grading and selecting the 24 successful fellows from a very competitive pool of candidates. We look forward to working with all of you! This year the community ownership has substantially increased in the process and management of this fellowship.
