Workforce Education & Training Programs

California’s public mental health system has suffered from a shortage of public mental health workers, misdistribution of certain public mental health occupational classifications, a recognized lack of diversity in the workforce, and under-representation of professionals with consumer and family member experience, and of racial, ethnic, and cultural communities in the provision of services and support. To address the public mental health workforce issues, the MHSA included a component for Workforce Education and Training (WET) programs.

WET carries forth the vision of the MHSA to create a transformed, culturally-competent system that promotes wellness, recovery and resilience across the lifespan of age groups such as infants, children, adolescents, transition age youth, adults and older adults.
