In many Kansas behavioral health professions, the workforce supply does not meet community demand, and projections for the future indicate increasing challenges. The aging workforce and geographic clustering further accentuate the issues.
On February 23, 2023, the Kansas Health Institute (KHI) offered an education session to share the latest data on the independent practice behavioral health workforce and discuss the aging and geographic distribution of certain behavioral health professionals. Cynthia Snyder, M.A., KHI Analyst, and David Fye, J.D., Executive Director of the Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board, led the discussion. A recording of the session is below.
