Learning Collaborative on Workforce Recruitment & Retention in Behavioral Health

Request for Applications (RFA)


Recruiting and retaining a workforce is a major challenge for many organizations that provide mental health and addiction services. To assist behavioral health organizations in addressing their recruitment and retention challenges, technical assistance is being offered through a Learning Collaborative. This is available to organizations providing behavioral health services in the state of Maryland. Space is available for seven organizations to participate.

The Sponsors

This initiative is sponsored by the Central East Mental Health Technology Transfer Center and the Community Behavioral Health Association of Maryland. The Learning Collaborative is designed and managed by The Annapolis Coalition on the Behavioral Health Workforce, one of the nation’s leading technical assistance organizations focused on mental health and substance use workforce issues.


There is no fee for organizations to participate in the Learning Collaborative. Organizations are responsible for covering the cost of travel for a three-person team to attend a one-day meeting in the Catonsville, Maryland.
