Southern CT State University MSW Cohort Program on Co-Occurring Disorders

The Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) has taken significant and essential steps to increase its capacity to provide accessible, effective, comprehensive, integrated, and evidence-based services for adults with co-occurring disorders (CODs). One facet of this DMHAS initiative has been to work with Southern CT State University (SCSU) to reformat a portion of its Master of Social Work (MSW) program to meet better the need to have trained professionals who are well equipped to work with persons who have co-occurring disorders. This weekend cohort program option that focuses on integrated care and co-occurring disorders has been a collaboration with SCSU for the past several years. A cohort of twenty students is recruited for this 3-year program every other year.

Due to COVID-19 there will be no in-person informational sessions this fall. Applications are due December 15th and more details are available on their website and from Dr. Rakfeldt (contact information is included in these attachments).
