Scholarships for NPs Seeking Psychiatric-Mental Health Certification

The Virginia Health Care Foundation (VHCF) has established a special scholarship program to underwrite tuition and fees for Nurse Practitioners (NP) who return to school to obtain a post master’s certificate as Psychiatric-Mental Health NPs (Psych NPs).  This is a wonderful opportunity for nurse practitioners to gain valuable training to help address a huge unmet need in Virginia.  To learn about VHCF’s Psych NP scholarship, including eligibility criteria and application materials, click here.

Trauma Informed Care and Resilience:

VHCF has compiled a list of resources to learn about Trauma Informed Care and Resilience, as well as a free introductory webinar series. Additional in-person workshop and training opportunities are available (email Andrea Lancaster to learn more).

Mental Health Roundtables:

VHCF hosts semi-annual Mental Health Roundtables for health safety net organizations, Community Services Boards, mental health professionals, policy makers and others.  These half-day roundtables focus on key issues related to increasing access to mental health services for Virginians. (Email Kari Parkhurst to be added to the Mental Health Roundtable email list.)

For access to presentations and materials from prior roundtables, visit the Mental Health Roundtable section of this website.
