Seleni Institute Receives $20,000 Grant for 40 Maternal Mental Health Clinical Training Scholarships

July 29, 2019 – New York, NY - The Seleni Institute has been awarded a grant from a philanthropic donor which will provide 40 full scholarships for Seleni’s Maternal Mental Health Intensive Clinical Training online courses. The scholarships valued at $20,000 are targeted to support mental health professionals and students serving underserved populations.

Seleni is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the emotional health of individuals and families during the family building years. The organization argues that there is a gap in knowledge and understanding that often results in maternal mental health challenges going un-diagnosed or being inappropriately treated. Recognizing this growing need to equip mental health professionals with this critical knowledge to support mothers and their families, this grant will support further education in this specialist branch of mental health.

Application for the scholarship is open to mental health professionals, social workers, doulas, midwives, nurses, lactation consultants, or other health care professionals who would benefit from this training. Candidates must work primarily with those who have low-incomes and other underserved populations. First round submissions are due Monday, September 9, 2019. See here
