Navigating the Behavioral Health Workforce Crisis: Enhancing Clinical Leadership for Sustainable Success

Thursday, December 7 at 1 p.m. Eastern

Behavioral health organizations nationwide are experiencing a perfect storm of clinician shortages while reaching record-setting client waitlist numbers and acuity levels. During this behavioral health crisis, clinical leadership is key to maintaining high-quality behavioral health services. Clinical supervisors are overwhelmed with managing personnel issues, administrative tasks, and clinical consultation all while often serving their own growing caseload of clients. These days, it is a luxury to do anything other than the necessary daily grind. It is time to take a breath and consider that our laser focus on task management might be causing us to ignore the steps we can take to stop the spin cycle of high clinician turnover. This presentation will provide participants with the tools they need to raise leaders who inspire an engaged workforce, elevate clinical quality, and build a sustainable future.
