The Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) Program (formerly called the MHTP – Mental Health Training Program) provides stipends for SDSU Master of Social Work (MSW) students who are planning careers in behavioral health services.
Through a competitive process, students are selected to receive a stipend in the final year of the MSW program. Each student completes specialized courses and a field placement in a county-operated or county-contracted community-based mental/behavioral health agency.
Students may receive a total of $18,500 (if enrolled full-time). A student who receives a full-time stipend has a service obligation to work full-time for one calendar year in a county-operated or county-contracted behavioral health agency following graduation.
