Dr. Harley is currently the PI of a $1.9 million 4-year Health and Human Services Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training grant. The grant funds our UC Bear-CAT Fellowship Program which is a collaboration between the School of Social Work, the College of Education and Human Services, Mental Health Counseling Program, School Counseling Program, and the Doctoral School Psychology Program. This purpose of the program is to increase the number of adequately prepared graduate-level behavioral health clinicians entering and continuing practice with at-risk children, adolescents, and transitional-age youth in the greater Cincinnati region. Program participants receive financial support, behavioral health training specific to the child, adolescent, and transitional-age youth population, with additional training focused on team-based care in integrated behavioral health and primary care settings, and telebehavioral health.
She is also a co-I of $1.25 million 4-year National Institutes of Health Science Education Partnership Award that that supports high school students in conducting original research in the areas of substance use/misuse/abuse and/or mental health in their local communities. The goal is to engage young people directly in making an impact on health outcomes in their communities by tackling issues that they deem as important. Participating students gain scientific skills in conducting original research as well as literacy skills in academic writing and oral presentation. Her team provides teacher training and also work directly (about once each week) with teachers and students throughout the year.
