Residency and Traineeship

The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) Residency and Training Program funds the training of mental health professionals, including psychiatric residents and students of psychology, nurses, social workers and others to serve adults and children in Ohio's public mental health system. The program recruits and retains highly qualified mental health professionals and promotes linkages to local systems and stakeholders.

Residency and Training Program grant funds are used primarily to support faculty in providing training relevant to public mental health. There is an expectation that applicants will obtain collaborative financial support by engaging community stakeholders and others (e.g., supplemental salary from boards and community agencies and/or grants from public and private foundations). Priority is given to applicants who seek to develop self-sustaining and enduring programs within their colleges and universities.
