    The Behavioral Health-Works program has been nominated for the Scattergood Mental Health Innovation Grant. This is a prestigious national award for innovations in the development and delivery of mental health services.

    One hundred and fifteen grants were submitted and we have been selected as one of the 15 finalists. As you may know, our web based program focuses on integrating suicide/mental health training, screening and triage services into primary care and emergency rooms. We now need your vote for the final round.

    Please go to the link below and to the program titled "Drexel University, College of Nursing and Health Professions | BH-Works - Using Technology to Incorporate Mental Health Screening into Medical Settings." Select any of the criteria for why this project is important. Wining this award will bring more national attention to youth suicide prevention.

    Thank you for your support.

    Title: Research on the Health Determinants and Consequences of Violence and its Prevention, Particularly Firearm Violence (R21)


    Program URL:

    NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) and Office invite applications for basic neuroscience and basic behavioral research, clinical and translational studies, intervention development at the individual, family and community level, efficacy trials of interventions based on evidence from basic and translational studies, and research to identify the best ways to disseminate and implement efficacious and evidence-based interventions in real-world settings. While this FOA covers all of the areas mentioned above, particular consideration will be given to applications that propose studies of the intersection that focus on the various types of violence (homicide, suicide, youth and gang-related, intimate partner) and firearms. This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
