Expanding California's Behavioral Health Workforce

Featured Resource: 2021 Behavioral Health Workforce Assessment

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is expanding California’s behavioral health workforce to improve consumer access to, and productive participation in, behavioral health services throughout the state. As part of this commitment, DHCS contracted with Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. (AHP), to implement the Behavioral Health Workforce Development (BHWD) initiative.

As of July 2023, 286 grantees have been awarded funds that support the expansion of their
behavioral health operations. Grantees are also supported in other ways including this customized
platform providing learning and development resources.
