Integrated Behavioral Health Program

CalSWEC’s Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) Program focuses on education and training, evaluation, and community collaboration efforts in behavioral health care workforce development. The IBH Program coordinates the statewide MHSA Stipend Program for MSW students and the regional San Francisco Bay Area Integrated Behavioral Health MSW Stipend Program. 

IBH also oversees the evaluation of Berkeley Social Welfare’s Latinx Center of Excellence, focused on the behavioral health care needs of Latinx communities.

We use emerging models to address the needs of California’s evolving service delivery systems, and seek to develop new projects focused on all levels of workforce development and program evaluation. We participate actively in statewide advocacy and legislative efforts to support workforce development for California’s behavioral health care system.
