Statewide Oversight Commission on Mental Health Workforce Development

Point of Contact:

Nick Toumpas, Karitsa Consulting Services,

Lead Organization:

Office of the Governor


Description of Project:

This oversight commission was created to coordinate statewide mental health workforce initiatives and develop a statewide mental health workforce plan. It was created in 2019 by the Governor through executive order per the 10-year mental health plan. The Oversight Commission hears from stakeholders about challenges in the workforce, and a report goes to the Governor with recommendations. People are appointed to join the commission, so it is not open for public participation. Meetings are held monthly.
