Through a competitive application process, the National Council will select up to 35 emerging leaders from across the country to participate in this intensive program designed to reduce health disparities for ethnic, racial and LGBTQ populations that receive community-based behavioral health services.
Since 2010, the National Council has engaged more than 100 individuals from community mental health and addiction organizations, primary care clinics, hospital systems and state agencies. The Program fosters mid-level managers who are eager to gain the awareness, knowledge and skills to develop and lead strategies to eliminate health disparities within the behavioral health populations they serve.
The National Council is committed to doing our part to foster a diverse behavioral health workforce. As such, we are pleased to continue to offer the Addressing Health Disparities Leadership Program at no cost to participants, including all program activities and travel-related expenses.
