Mental Health Initiative Stipend Program (CalSWEC II)

CalSWEC II is a collaborative effort between Mental Health and the School of Social Work to move toward a state-of-the-art, culturally competent system that promotes recovery/wellness for adults and seniors with severe mental illness and for children with serious emotional disorders and their families. Funded through the California Department of Mental Health with Proposition 63 monies, CalSWEC II provides financial support to MSW students in exchange for a commitment to work in a county public mental health agency or a community based organization under contract to a county public mental health agency in the state of California.
Stipends: The program provides a training stipend of $18,500 per year for two year program students who will be completing their 2nd year field placement.
Admissions: Students employed in public or private agencies must be on a full-time leave from those agencies, and must demonstrate an interest in and commitment to mental health services as described in the Mental Health Services Act.
