The quarterly State Solutions in Workforce webinar series, which launched last fall, continues highlighting innovative practices by the states in developing the substance use and mental health workforce.
A recording of the first webinar, which took place in September and highlighted initiatives in Nebraska, is available online here.
January’s webinar highlighted the workforce development effort in Connecticut under a SAMHSA Mental Health Transformation Grant. Presenters included Michael Hoge (Annapolis Coalition), Barbara Bugella (State of Connecticut), and Elisabeth Cannata (Wheeler Clinic). They discussed two key initiatives – one on curriculum reform related to evidence-based practices in higher education, the other on improving supervision. The recording for this webinar should be available on SAMHSA’s YouTube channel in the coming weeks.
The series is the brainchild of the leadership of the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN), which is directed by Dr. Howard Liu. Other sponsors of the series include SAMHSA, NASADAD, NASMHPD, and the Annapolis Coalition on the Behavioral Health Workforce.
Mark your calendars for the next two webinars in this series.
