One in five adults has a mental health condition. These are our loved ones, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends.
But when care providers are exhausted and overworked, we can’t do our best work to help our clients recover and heal. In today’s behavioral health system, real barriers stand in our clients’ way—and many of these issues stem from the fact that workers aren’t being heard or supported.
Reasonable caseloads and staffing ratios that allow us to do our best work.
Meaningful development of our skills so we can provide better care.
Adequate wages and benefits that reflect our skill, dedication and the importance of our jobs.
Transparency and accountability to ensure behavioral health agencies are putting client health first.
We are coming together as a movement, lifting our voices and the voices of our clients to drive meaningful change.
