The School of Social Work has been awarded a $1.4 million D.H.H.S (HRSA) grant, Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training for Professionals, to span three years for the purpose of developing and expanding the substance abuse and mental health workforce. The School’s project, “Integrative, Intercultural Innovations in Behavioral and Primary Health with Youth at-Risk”, the I-3 Project, will focus on specialized training for MSW student who will work with children, adolescents, and transitional-age youth at risk for developing or who have developed a recognized behavioral health disorder. The I-3 Project will recruit, educate, train, place in specific field areas, and graduate 34 MSW students annually who are dedicated to working with the target population. These students will receive a substantial stipend for their professional field training. To accomplish these goals, the I-3 Project focuses on integrative, intercultural, and innovative knowledge and skills through coursework, specialized training, and field placements. The unique mission of the I-3 Project is that it is a School-wide effort, building on expertise of faculty, field placement agencies, and interprofessional community partnerships. Drs. Russell, Noble, Biggs and Mr. Medel will be implementing the I-3 Project.

On September 25, 2012, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notified the School of Social Work at Texas State University that the HHS Health Resources and Services Administration has awarded the School $479,035 over three years to fund the School's Project Stand Up for Veterans. This exciting project will fund student stipends to educate graduate social workers in mental and behavioral health and prepare them to work with military personnel, veterans, and their families. Just as the military stands up a trained force, Texas State School of Social Work will stand up a cadre of well-prepared clinical social workers prepared to work with this population. Dr. Mary Jo Garcia Biggs, Dr. Katherine Selber, and Dr. Amy Russell oversee Project Stand Up for Veterans.
The School of Social Work at Texas State University has been selected by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) to partner with the association in developing a curriculum known as the ASWB Path to Licensure Campaign.
