June Leadership Council on Behavioral Health Internship Program

GCACH not only recognized the shortage in behavioral health professionals in the region, but saw the opportunity to help connect students into the healthcare workforce. The intent of this program was to support organizations willing to precept, supervise, or train professionals seeking careers in behavioral health or having a behavioral health component who need clinical experience in order to complete their education and certification requirements. The goal of this program has been to increase the behavioral health professionals in the GCACH Region.
 
We have invited the organizations who participated in the program to speak to their experience at the Leadership Council on June 16, 2022. During that time, we will hear from the organizations about how they implemented this program, success stories, barriers encountered, and lesson learned.
 
We will be hearing from:

  • Triumph Treatment Services
  • Catholic Charities Serving Central Washington
  • First Steps
  • Lutheran Community Services Northwest
  • Rod’s House
