AmeriCorps Behavioral Health Service Program Begins

The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) is excited to announce a new AmeriCorps State Program to support the recruitment, training, and development of a new generation of public health leaders to support behavioral health service programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. NNCC’s AmeriCorps members will serve in the community to learn how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the utilization of behavioral health services and establish a catalog of local resources. These members will expand the capacity for organizations to screen and refer individuals for substance use disorder and mental health treatment and identify critical services needed in response to the ongoing pandemic.
