Behavioral Health Training Institute for Health Officials

 We'd like to share the following professional development opportunity for public health officials (senior public health professionals, such as directors of county health departments):

Supporting public health leaders is critical to strengthening our nation’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring affordable and quality care for all and shifting social norms on mental health and substance use disorders to address community needs.

The National Council for Behavioral Health’s 2020-2021 Behavioral Health Training Institute for Health Officials Program,* in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Center for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, seeks to provide a national cohort of public health officials with training and technical assistance opportunities to advance behavioral health efforts in communities across the nation.

This opportunity will provide a dynamic eight-month leadership program to support public health officials:

  • Cultivate crisis leadership skills and support mental health resiliency during COVID-19.
  • Develop and enhance behavioral health competencies in designing and enhancing supports for communities and vulnerable populations.
  • Improve interagency partnerships to address behavioral health needs with guidance from subject matter experts.
  • Advance health equity, operationalize critical activities that move the needle on social determinants and integrate trauma-informed approaches.

Participation in the Behavioral Health Training Institute is FREE, including participation at NatCon21, and includes direct access to coaching calls, monthly webinars, workshops, Mental Health First Aid training and exclusive peer-to-peer engagement.





Applications for the 2020-21 Behavioral Health Training Institute for Health Officials Program are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, December 18, 2020.
