WHO SHOULD APPLY?
Although the content of this program is designed for mid and senior level leaders, we believe that leadership is not positional and happens at all levels within an organization. With this in mind,participants may include: County Mental Health/Behavioral Health Directors;Substance Use Disorder Services Administrators; Non-Profit Mental Health Directors; Deputy Directors; senior and mid-level leaders and those who are preparing to assume senior level behavioral health leadership roles; and Executive Directors, executive and senior level leaders of community-based,non-profit agencies that provide public mental health or substance use disorder services are encouraged to apply.
The participation of leaders and emerging leaders reflecting the diversity of our communities, including lived experience as mental health clients/persons in recovery, and/or as family members are also strongly encouraged.
