Call for applications to improve implementation of psychosocial interventions

The UW Alacrity Center is seeking applications for their pilot study awards to improve the implementation of evidence-based psychosocial interventions. A psychosocial intervention is one that involves specific techniques and strategies which target a variety of biological, cognitive, and emotional elements in treating mental health issues. These types of interventions often face barriers, especially in rural or underserved populations, due to lack of clinician training or complexity of the treatment itself.

Through this pilot award, the UW Alacrity Center hopes to stimulate research in this area and develop sustainable policies and programs in clinics, primary care offices, and other integrated settings. The ultimate goal is that this pilot award will lead to a federally funded research project.

Award Details

  • UW faculty, fellows, and extraordinary graduate students are eligible to apply
  • Teams must include a multi-disciplinary co-PI collaboration
  • Maximum award: $50,000
  • Application Deadline: October 15, 2018
