SCRP Stipend Programs
The Southern Counties Regional Partnership (SCRP) has initiated the Graduate Stipend Program and the Peer Support Specialist Program to promote a qualifying workforce in its public mental health delivery systems. Member counties of SCRP are Imperial, Kern, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tri-Cities (Claremont, La Verne and Pomona) and Ventura. The Graduate Stipend Program is funded through a state grant the southern counties received to pursue the objectives of the Mental Health Services Act.
SCRP has selected Campbellsville University as its administrator and fiscal intermediary to deliver these programs which will be managed by the Stipend Program at Phillips. The Stipend Program has had over 16 years’ experience in delivering similar stipend programs for the state’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development and for the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.
