Strategic Response to Behavioral Workforce Shortages

The ATTC Network Workforce Development Coordination Workgroup was formed to increase the perspective and understanding of the current challenges facing recruitment and retention for behavioral health jobs and how the ATTC Network could assist in addressing these challenges and opportunities. These three one-pagers were developed to focus on three particular areas of the many affecting this employee shortage: Portability of Licenses and Certifications, Recruitment of New Employees to the Field, and Competitive Pay. Each one-pager states the issue, provides recommendations, gives examples of what is already happening in that area, and contains possible action steps to adopt to further address the issue.
