Project Best

Project BEST is a state-wide collaborative effort to use innovative community-based dissemination, training, and implementation methods to dramatically increase the capacity of every community in South Carolina to deliver evidence-supported mental health treatments (ESTs) to every abused and traumatized child who needs them. The long-term goal of Project BEST is to ensure that all South Carolina children and their families, who are identified as having experienced abuse and resulting trauma, receive appropriate, evidence supported mental health assessment and psychosocial treatment services.







As part of the 7th Annual Project BEST FEST in Columbia on February 23, 2018, the 2017 Project BEST Outstanding Achievement Awards ( aka "the BESTies") will be presented and we need your nominations. We encourage you to meet with Project BEST colleagues from your community and nominate outstanding Project BEST participants for these awards or submit a nomination yourself. This is a great opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of your community colleagues and partners in serving children and families! 


The following will be awarded:

  • The BEST of Project BEST Award
  • PB Clinical Excellence Award
  • PB Broker Excellence Award
  • PB Champion Award
