The University of Tennessee College of Social Work received a $4 million grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to study how behavioral health services can help delinquent children in Rural Appalachia.
Through this project, 720 adolescents suffering from emotional and/or behavioral problems will receive treatment in eight of the poorest counties in East Tennessee.
(NIMH) is part of the National Institute of Health, a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
