CoE Office Hour: Short-Term Policy Relief to Enhance the Workforce

The mental health and substance use recovery workforce shortage is a national crisis. The demand for mental health and substance use treatment services still growing as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to exacerbate an already overburdened health care workforce.

In response, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, in collaboration with Health Management Associates (HMA), prepared a series of three issue briefs to offer immediate policy actions to expand current capacity and build a more stable future workforce. These recommendations will improve access to treatment services by expanding current workforce capacity and promoting effective strategies for long-term impact. Topic areas for the briefs include policy, financial strategies, and regulatory waivers; clinical care delivery models and digital solutions; and strategies to address diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Join us on Tuesday, November 16th, from 1-2 p.m. ET for CoE Office Hour: Short-Term Policy Relief for Enhancing the Workforce, to hear from a panel of experts as they discuss policy relief solutions and outcomes to enhance the workforce.
