For the past year, the Washington State Healthcare Authority: Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery – Prevention (DBHR – Px), in partnership with Washington State University’s IMPACT Lab, has welcomed 13 passionate, inquisitive, and hardworking undergraduate and graduate students into the Prevention Fellowship Program.

Fellows play a pivotal role in the DBHR team, helping solve real world problems in prevention science, substance use prevention, and mental health promotion.

At the end of the experience, fellows are uniquely positioned to enter the prevention workforce, walking away with newfound leadership and communication skills and a deep understanding of multi-level prevention work.

Prevention science experience is not necessary, and students of all majors are encouraged to apply. We welcome all applicants who have obtained or are working towards a Bachelors!
