Workforce Education and Training Programs (WET)

The 2020-2025 Workforce Education and Training (WET) program will address the shortage of mental health practitioners in the public mental health system (PMHS) through a framework that engages Regional Partnerships and supports individuals through pipeline development, undergraduate scholarships, education stipends, and educational loan repayment.  The program also supports systems through peer personnel preparation, psychiatric education capacity, the Train New Trainers Psychiatry Fellowship Scholarship, and research and evaluation.

WET Five-Year Plan#

In January 2019, the California Behavioral Health Planning Council (CBHPC)approved the 2020-2025 WET Five-Year Plan

 


 

About Us#

In November 2004, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) imposed a one percent tax on personal income in excess of $1 million to support prevention, early intervention, and services in the public mental health system. The MHSA includes a component for Workforce Education and Training (WET) programs, which supports new and continuing professionals committed to working in the public mental health system.
