MDHHS seeking proposals for student internship stipend program to enhance behavioral health workforce  

By Michigan Department of Health and Human Services

LANSING, Mich. – As part of the state’s continuing commitment to improving access to behavioral health services for Michigan’s families, the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget (DTMB) has issued a request for proposal (RFP) on behalf of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to establish a program that will provide stipends for student interns in Michigan’s public behavioral health system. 

The Internship Stipend Program seeks to increase the availability of behavioral health services across the State of Michigan by incentivizing internship opportunities for college students. People will be eligible for stipends if they are working toward behavioral health credentials from an accredited program and interning at approved sites in Michigan.
