MHARI: Diversity, Inclusion Scholarship and Internship Program

The Mental Health Association of Rhode Island (MHARI) aims to increase the availability of culturally and linguistically competent mental health providers in Rhode Island.  We received funding to distribute scholarships and internship stipends for social work and mental health counseling graduate students from diverse backgrounds at Rhode Island College. Supporting today’s students will diversify tomorrow's mental health professionals, thus increasing access to treatment and services for under-represented groups. 

This is a pilot program, and we are excited to launch it. Please help us spread the word.  Applications are due August 1, 2022.
