Created by the Home Care Aide Council.
The regional MassHire Workforce Boards are partnering with local community-based behavioral healthcare employers and education and training providers to meet employer demand for skilled workers by providing job training and support to adults who want to prepare for occupations with persistent demand.
The Behavioral Health Partnership Expansion Grant grantees recruit and train unemployed and underemployed candidates for entry-level roles and support training and other supports intended to provide career advancement opportunities for entry and mid-level behavioral healthcare staff. Funds from this grant initiative also support clinical supervision and mentorship costs for workers pursuing clinical licenses.
These regional partnerships of employers, educators, and workforce professionals meet to build and strengthen relationships and develop regionally-focused workforce strategies to meet staffing needs and create a more competitive Massachusetts behavioral healthcare system.
