SAMHSA is recruiting young emerging leaders in the field of behavioral health for the 2015 Behavioral Health Leadership Development Program (BHLDP), a component of its Project LIFT (Leadership Initiatives for Tomorrow).

To qualify, individuals must be between the ages of 20 and 30 and currently working in – or committed to a future career in – the behavioral health field.
