Grants to West Virginia nonprofit organizations, behavioral health centers, health care providers, institutions of higher education, and other entities to provide online training for behavioral health workers. Funding is intended to offer free virtual behavioral health skills training with the goal of increasing behavioral health workforce excellence and reducing behavioral health disparities.
BBH is seeking applicants who have the regional or statewide capacity, infrastructure, and virtual web-based technology to provide evidence-based training to behavioral health professionals and paraprofessionals. Applicants should have the capacity and logistical expertise not only to provide quality, high-volume educational training experiences virtually but also to provide or contract with subject matter experts for evidence-based behavioral health training.
The ideal applicant will already have access to a virtual platform and technical infrastructure capacity, as well as extensive experience with delivering or facilitating continuing education to therapists/counselors, focused on mental health and/or substance use disorder, peer recovery support specialists, and other behavioral health paraprofessionals.
The selected grantee will market training via multiple methods and platforms in order to maximize the attendance of these individuals throughout the state. Grantees will also work collaboratively with BBH to provide Continuing Education Units for each training delivered. Applicants will also be required to support the BBH Training Coordinator as needed in establishing the Statewide Training Advisory Council, including providing as-needed meeting facilitation, scheduling, logistics, and meeting notes.
The ideal applicant will have a history of expertise with implementing councils (or equivalent groups) on compressed timelines and including a range of diverse stakeholders. The ideal applicant will also have a history of experience with a high level of responsiveness in working relationships, products, and processes at the regional and state level in West Virginia.
