News

With the recent focus on racial injustices in the United States and the additional stressors and traumas African Americans and other racial minorities may experience in this country, the topic of mental health has been brought to the forefront. Research has consistently indicated that minority communities are generally underserved. Members of minority groups are less likely to receive mental health treatment, and when they do, they may not receive the best quality of care. Because of this, the United States Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has emphasized the importance of increasing the number of mental health providers, especially those from disadvantaged communities. Their hope is that these providers, through their shared experiences, will be better able to meet the needs of these communities.

Texas Southern University is proud to announce that their Psychology Department has been awarded a 2.9-million-dollar HRSA grant that will provide full scholarships to students pursuing a Master of Arts in Clinical Community Psychology. Over 5 years, scholarships will be provided to 118 aspiring mental health clinicians from disadvantaged backgrounds. This scholarship will cover tuition, fees, books, and licensure preparation expenses. Qualified students must apply for admission to the graduate school at TSU and then complete an application for the scholarship. The scholarship will be competitive; only 20 incoming full-time graduate students will be awarded the scholarship each fall. Selected students will continue to receive funding each subsequent year while in the master’s program until the grant ends. As part of this effort, the Psychology Department at TSU will also dedicate resources to help recipients find training opportunities and job positions in community and primary care clinics in underserved areas. It is expected that scholarship recipients will have the passion and commitment to continue working in these communities after graduation.

TSU and HRSA have a shared vision. Many children, adults, and families are in immediate need of quality mental health services, but too often limited resources, lack of providers willing to accept Medicaid or provide low-cost services, and other barriers to treatment prevent these individuals from receiving the care they need. This grant being awarded to TSU is a large step in the right direction to address these problems.

On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, Junior Music Education major and soprano section leader for the TSU University Choir J’Neise Hodge represented Texas Southern University by performing in the 105 Voices of History HBCU National Choir virtual performance of Dr. Roland Carter’s arrangement of Lift Every Voice and Sing. Choir singers from across our nation’s historically Black colleges and universities submitted audition videos during the summer and Hodge was among the selected singers to be featured in the video that premiered as a part of the White House Initiative HBCU Week 2020.
