Commitment to Diversity 

Cultural and individual differences and diversity in the training of mental health professionals is important. The Behavioral Health Fellowship is committed to creating a diverse and multiculturally competent cohort of fellows and implements strategies to ensure that fellowship cohorts are diverse and trained in multicultural competency. The fellowship provides an open, supportive, and encouraging environment for all fellows. Fellows are provided with comprehensive and up-to-date didactic training experiences related to multicultural competencies throughout the fellowship year. These competencies are incorporated into practical experience, research, case conceptualization and presentation, and supervision. Fellows develop individualized training plans with their supervisors and, if desired, fellows will be connected with diverse mentorship opportunities.
