Current Projects

The Greater Bay Area Mental Health & Education Workforce Collaborative (the Collaborative) represents many different counties, agencies, organizations, and institutions, all committed to expanding the Greater Bay Area's public mental/behavioral health workforce.

The Collaborative is a project of the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS). For more information about CIBHS, visit the website here.

Past Projects

The goal of the Mental Health Core Competencies project was to define the essential values and knowledge needed that make up competencies, as well as the hard skills (learned and applied) and soft skills (interpersonal or people skills) required to perform duties and tasks in the public mental health system.

The Peer Leadership Institute (PLI) is a one-year workforce development project that will serve peer providers in a four-county contiguous region of the Northern San Francisco Bay Area.
