Behavioral Health Workforce Capacity Development

This project aims to build and maintain the workforce required to meet the objectives of the DSRIP demonstration. It will increase community-based behavioral health service capacity through the education, recruitment and training of a workforce with knowledge and skills to provide and coordinate the full continuum of substance use disorder and mental health services. Under this project, each IDN will develop and implement a strategy for addressing its workforce gaps using a framework established by a Statewide Behavioral Health Workforce Capacity Taskforce.
