Be a Leader in Community Behavioral Health, and in Your Community.

The Leadership in Community Behavioral Health (LCBH) Fellowship, funded by Mass General Brigham, recruits graduates from the fields of counseling, psychology, and social work and prepares them to serve as supervisors, administrators, and/or organizational leaders in community health centers and other community-based agencies that provide behavioral health services to historically excluded and underserved populations.
