Join the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) STAR² Center and Community Health Center Inc./Weitzman Institute for a three-part webinar series focused on “Special Considerations for the Retention and Recruitment of Mental Health Providers.” In this webinar series, presenters will speak to the importance of building a mental health provider pipeline, the development of inclusive workplaces that engage, retain, and recruit mission-driven providers, and the importance of understanding the essential contributions of the mental health workforce to community health centers. As the conversation around mental health continues to grow, this is a fundamental area that all health centers must understand and be prepared to meet the needs of providers, patients, and the community they serve.
