Navigating the Perfect Storm of Mental Health Recruiting

Written by Dani Rice, Co-Founder & Chief Mental Health Employer Solutions Provider, Empowered Partnerships


The Mental Health Industry is faced with some of the toughest recruiting challenges in history.

First of all, there is a massive shortage of qualified candidates. New team members need the right education, license or certification as well as experience. In addition, they need specific exposure to the correct patient population and disorders. Top that with needing the correct personality to fit the Consumers and the team as a whole.


Secondly, Organizations have understaffed, overworked and burned out teams. Unfilled positions requires the team to work overtime to provide additional coverage eventually burning out the team. Employees who are unwilling to keep up with the pace, find positions at other companies. The results make the situation worse and add to the recruiting challenge overall.

In addition, there is a network of highly communicative job seekers. Job seekers share their experiences with friends and co-workers, especially any frustrating experiences. Bad experiences from peers results in qualified Job Seekers not even applying to the perfect job.

It’s a perfect storm…

Not enough job seekers, not enough staff and a branding issue, it all compiles into a Recruitment nightmare.
