Question: Is the Psychology Department at WSU and doctoral students who do brief screening at our clinic eligible to apply?

Answer: Page 5 of the RFP indicates entities that are eligible to apply for this funding opportunity. Wright State University as an educational entity under the jurisdiction of the Ohio Board of Regents is eligible to apply. However, the SBIRT services must be provided to a universal, school-based audience, where the intent is to provide prevention and early intervention services to those students identified as moderate to high risk. Clinical, medical, therapeutic, and treatment-based services are unallowable under this funding opportunity.

Question: Will proposals be accepted that seek to use the SBIRT screening with populations over the age of 18?

Answer: Page 3 of the RFP states, “In an effort to prevent substance use and to identify depression and anxiety among school-aged youth, ADAMHS is seeking proposals to initiate a pilot project to implement Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) within in schools in Montgomery County. This pilot project will use the “SBIRT Toolkit for Schools” developed by PreventionFIRST!, a nonprofit organization in the Cincinnati area, as a reference to pair SBIRT with other school screenings such as scoliosis, hearing, vision, and Body Mass Index (BMI).

This project was recently initiated in Norwood City Schools and has achieved significant outcomes demonstrating substantial benefits to the students served. It has also received national recognition. ADAMHS is looking to replicate the successes experienced by this project.” ADAMHS will only accept proposals that seek to use SBIRT in Middle and High Schools in Montgomery County. This is in major part due to this being a pilot project that is using the model provided by PreventionFIRST! who implemented the SBIRT screenings into Norwood City Schools with youth between the ages of 9 and 18.
