San Diego County proposes $24M behavioral health worker training program

A new training program for behavioral health workers is among seven proposals looking to share $80 million in federal funding across California's San Diego County, The San-Diego Union Tribune reported Jan. 2.

If approved, the proposal would designate $24 million from American Rescue Plan Act funds to develop a training program and fund to educate and advance behavioral health workers throughout the region, which will need an estimated 18,500 more workers by 2027 to meet demand.

The proposals will be under consideration at the next meeting of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors Jan. 9, the report said.
