Applications are due 11:59 PM PST on July 17th, 2020.
For the past year, the Washington State Healthcare Authority: Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery – Prevention (DBHR – Px), in partnership with Washington State University’s IMPACT Lab, has welcomed 13 passionate, inquisitive, and hardworking undergraduate and graduate students into the Prevention Fellowship Program.
Fellows play a pivotal role in the DBHR team, helping solve real world problems in prevention science, substance use prevention, and mental health promotion. These interactions provide one-of-a-kind insights into state, local, and community initiatives that impact the health and wellbeing of children, youth, and families in Washington State.
The DBHR Prevention Fellowship is a paid 10-month experience that offers unparalleled access to Washington State's leaders in behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery. Fellows dive into hands-on problem-based learning alongside the state's behavioral health prevention, treatment, and recovery leaders. At the end of the experience, fellows are uniquely positioned to enter the prevention workforce, walking away with newfound leadership and communication skills and a deep understanding of multi-level prevention work.
Prevention science experience is not necessary, and students of all majors are encouraged to apply. We welcome all applicants who have obtained or are working towards a Bachelors! Whether your interest is in Social Work, Public Health, Public Policy, Communication, Public Administration, or elsewhere, there is a place for you here at DBHR – Px.
