Direct Care and Behavioral Health Workforce Assessment: Regional Feedback Sessions

Public Sector Consultants and Health Management Associates are partnering with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to gather the perspectives of people impacted by the direct care worker (DCW) and behavioral health workforce shortages. Through regional focus groups with DCWs, behavioral health professionals, employers and consumers, the project aims to identify direct care and behavioral health workforce needs, examine the impact of workforce shortages and develop potential solutions to overcome these challenges. Both employers and behavioral health professionals are encouraged to participate.

MHA members interested in attending a regional focus group are encouraged to register. Members with questions should contact Lauren LaPine at the MHA.
