UNC-PrimeCare

UNC-PrimeCare

UNC-PrimeCare is the name of a HRSA funded project awarded to the School of Social Work in 2014. UNC-PrimeCare will offer over 20 training slots for students and a generous stipend totaling $10,000 during the 2016-2017 academic year. There will be required monthly, supplemental trainings for those interested in integrated behavioral health and who also have an interest in working with children, adolescents and/or emerging young adults. The goal of the project is to prepare MSW’s to effectively work in these settings after graduation and contribute to the behavioral health workforce.

In 2014, several faculty members (Zerden, Jones, Brigham, Day) from the UNC Chapel Hill School of Social Work applied for, and received a 3-year grant from HRSA (Health, Resources and Services Administration, the primary Federal agency for improving access to health care services for people who are uninsured, isolated, or medically vulnerable). The main purpose of the grant is to train Social Work students to deliver integrated behavioral health services in primary care settings, thus increasing the local and national behavioral health workforce.

The lack of access to behavioral health services is among the nation’s greatest health care disparities, and is particularly problematic for adolescents and young adults. Social workers can be invaluable members of an integrated health care team, and the aim of UNC-PrimeCare is to augment students’ training so they are ready to deliver quality behavioral health services upon graduation from their MSW program.
