Playbook Project: 2024 Indiana Mental and Behavioral Health County Level Needs Assessment

This assessment, as part of the Lilly Endowment sponsored Playbook Project, was created to examine mental and behavioral health workforce capacity in Indiana. It encompasses an examination of both population and workforce characteristics, offering valuable insights into assessing the demand and capacity of the mental and behavioral health workforce as well as insights into pipeline characteristics. This needs assessment can be used to inform workforce and pipeline development initiatives. For further details, please visit The Playbook Homepage.
