Establishing a $30 Million Renewable Training Fund for Behavioral Health Professionals

In August, the San Diego Workforce Partnership presented a new report to the County of San Diego that detailed the dire shortage of behavioral health workers facing the County. Soon after, the County assembled a panel of behavioral health leaders, educators, and workers to discuss the report’s findings. Social Finance Vice President and Head of Impact Advisory and Public Sector Practice Jake Segal spoke at that event about possible solutions to the County's behavioral health workforce shortage, including the creation of a renewable behavioral health workforce training fund.
