Learn, lead, and make a lasting impact in WA State!

For the past four years, the Washington State Health Care Authority, Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery's (DBHR) Substance Use Disorder Prevention and Mental Health Promotion Section, in partnership with Washington State University’s IMPACT Lab, has welcomed 28 passionate, inquisitive, and hardworking undergraduate and graduate students into the Prevention Fellowship Program.

The Prevention Fellowship is a paid 10-month opportunity that grants unparalleled access to Washington State's leaders in behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery. Fellows play a pivotal role on the DBHR team, helping solve real world problems in prevention science, substance use prevention, and mental health promotion. Through these meaningful interactions, Fellows gain invaluable insights into state, local, and community initiatives that profoundly impact the well-being of children, youth, and families across Washington State.
