Innovation & Awards
Across the nation, individuals and organizations are developing and pursuing unique strategies designed to improve behavioral health workforce recruitment, diversity, retention, training, education and performance. Historically, there has been no structure or mechanism for identifying these innovations. More importantly, there has been no way of broadly disseminating information about the innovations so that others could learn from, adopt or adapt these creative approaches.
Since our founding in 2001, the Annapolis Coalition has worked to discover innovative workforce practices, formally recognize the developers of the innovations, and summarize and distribute information about these workforce practices throughout all sectors of the mental health and addiction field.
