Northern Nevada Endowment Fund Request for Proposals (Opens Jan 1, 2023)

Through the Northern Nevada Endowment Fund, the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada will provide financial resources to respond to community challenges annually and/or as they arise. This grant cycle is a partnership between the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada and the University of Nevada, Reno - Community Behavioral Health Collaborative. 

Funding for the 2023 Grant cycle will support organizations that provide mental health resources and/or accessibility to such resources. 

Background Information

The University of Nevada, Reno - Community Behavioral Health Collaborative started in May 2021 and has 2 core goals:

1. To increase access to clinical/therapeutic mental health services

  • Nevada is 47th in access to mental health care.
  • Relatedly, a recent Children’s State of Mental Health report card gave Nevada failing grade [F] in access to mental/behavioral health care.

2. To stimulate an increase the number of qualified clinical mental health [MH] professionals, especially at the masters and doctoral levels. 

The need in Nevada is urgent, for example:

  • Nevada is 51st in shortage in mental health professionals compared to need
  • Relatedly a recent Children’s State of Mental Health report card gave Nevada failing grades [F] in substance abuse treatment, access to Mental/Behavioral Health care, and mental health services while engaged with juvenile justice.

Related to these 2 core goals, The UNR-Community Behavioral Health [BH] Collaborative endeavors to:

  • match masters and doctoral level pre-graduate and /or post-graduate interns and qualified clinical supervisors to private non-profit human services agencies for the purpose of delivering MH services to those most in need
  • the current model is: once per week clinical services in a 4-hour block from 2 graduate level interns and a clinical supervisor [= 6-8 hours of BH clinical services per week]
  • stimulate interns’ exposure to such agencies
  • grow the workforce of qualified clinical supervisors
  • incentivize masters and doctoral level BH trainees to take specialized coursework across disciplines [e.g., integrated care, substance abuse, diagnosis] for more comprehensive and rigorous training experiences

The Collaborative, in partnership with the Community Foundation, is offering grant funding to be used as stipends to promote its goals via reducing costs of:

  • clinical supervision training
  • post-masters intern pay for clinical supervision
  • tuition for specialized coursework
