​​​Workforce and Employment Committee

The purpose of the Workforce and Employment Committee (WEC) is to address the workforce shortage in the public behavioral health system, mental health workforce training, the employment of individuals with psychiatric disabilities, and the future of funding for workforce efforts.  Additionally, state law provides the Council with specific responsibilities in advising the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) on education and training policy development and also to provide oversight for the development of the Five-Year Education and Training Development Plan as well as review and approval authority of the final plan.  The WEC works closely with OSHPD staff to provide input, feedback and guidance and also to be the conduit for presenting information to the full Council membership as it relates to its responsibilities set in law.

More information on our purpose, mandates, goals, and members is contained in our charter.
