The Mental Health Recruiting Struggle is Real

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



For Mental Health Recruiting teams, the pressure is overwhelming. So many key positions open. The responsibility weighing on your shoulders to find the right staff, bring in the right people to have them start quickly and work with the team as soon as possible.

You know how important it is to get the right team in the positions to help all of the Consumers coming in to get help. The Consumers are coming in the door every day, and you’re not sleeping at night knowing that the positions stay open, the staff is overworked and exhausted, most of all the team is losing energy, all because those positions stay open.

Your internal nagging is constant:

“We need more people, but we can’t have just a warm body. We need a qualified, licensed professional to help all of our Consumers.  Every day someone comes in for help, we need someone ready to help those people.”

This is a common struggle for Management and Recruitment Teams across the country in the Mental and Behavioral Health Industry.
