The survey will be administered online through Qualtrics. The target population will be the 2,800 member organizations of the National Council of Behavioral Health (NCBH). NCBH members are healthcare organizations and management entities that offer treatment and supports to more than eight million adults and children living with mental illnesses and addictions. Provider Survey The survey will help identify how many licensed clinical behavioral health specialists (licensed psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed professional counselors) are seeing clients for behavioral health needs and the populations served. The survey includes questions to assess the following measures: Demographics (e.g., age, race/ethnicity, sex); professional and practice setting (e.g., self-employed, outpatient mental health clinic, zip code, hours worked); level of education (e.g., Masters in Social Work, Doctorate in Social Work); types of services provided (e.g., assertive community treatment); number of and type clients served (e.g., Medicaid, Medicare, veteran, immigrants); telehealth use (e.g., current or prior to COVID–19 outbreak); and career satisfaction and burnout (e.g., very satisfied, ‘‘I enjoy my work, I have no symptoms of burnout’’). The target population will be a random sample of 5,000 licensed clinical behavioral health providers (licensed psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed professional counselors) in states where email addresses are available with state licensure data. The primary objectives of the surveys are to: • Better understand factors associated with challenges in both recruitment and retention at behavioral health provider organizations. • Estimate the workforce needed to better address gaps in care for mental health and substance use disorder. • Obtain new insights on staffing models for treatment of serious mental illness, such as assertive community treatment. • Collect new data on use of peer support specialists, care coordinators, and pharmacists in behavioral health care. • Assess whether state licensure data is a reliable data source for building a comprehensive database on clinical behavioral health practitioners who are actively providing client services that require licensure.

Project: 2021 Behavioral Health Workforce Surveys, Part of the Mental 
and Substance Use Disorder Practitioner Data Grant Funded by SAMHSA, 
Grant Number H79FG000028

    SAMHSA is requesting from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
approval to administer two surveys being developed as part of the 
Mental and Substance Use Disorder Practitioner Data grant: (1) A one-
time survey to employers of behavioral health providers and, (2) a one-
time survey of licensed clinical behavioral health providers. The 
information gathered by these surveys will be used to gain critical new 
insights into, and to document, challenges in recruiting and retaining 
behavioral health staffing and to assess the strength of available data 
on the clinical behavioral health workforce actively providing care for 
mental health and substance use disorders.

Employer Survey

    The survey includes questions to assess the following measures: 
Facility type (e.g., outpatient facility, inpatient, residential); type 
of behavioral health staff employed (e.g., addiction medicine 
specialists, psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, marriage and family 
therapists); services offered (e.g., assertive community treatment, 
partial hospitalization); roles and training needs of peer support 
specialists, case managers, care managers, and pharmacists (e.g., 
certification, population served, paid status, reimbursement); 
professions with recruitment and retention challenges (e.g., select 
from list of professions); reasons behind the challenges (e.g., low 
wages, high case load) and work-arounds (e.g., use of locum tenens); 
average wait-time for appointments (e.g., new patient visits); staffing 
needed to address gaps in care (e.g., estimated FTEs needed by 
profession type); use of telehealth (e.g., percent of visits); patient 
mix (e.g., immigrants, LGBTQ communities, number of clients); and form 
of payment (e.g., percent commercial, Medicaid, self-pay). The survey 
will be administered online through Qualtrics.
    The target population will be the 2,800 member organizations of the 
National Council of Behavioral Health (NCBH). NCBH members are 
healthcare organizations and management entities that offer treatment 
and supports to more than eight million adults and children living with 
mental illnesses and addictions.

Provider Survey

    The survey will help identify how many licensed clinical behavioral 
health specialists (licensed psychologists, licensed clinical social 
workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed 
professional counselors) are seeing clients for behavioral health needs 
and the populations served. The survey includes questions to assess the 
following measures: Demographics (e.g., age, race/ethnicity, sex); 
professional and practice setting (e.g., self-employed, outpatient 
mental health clinic, zip code, hours worked); level of education 
(e.g., Masters in Social Work, Doctorate in Social Work); types of 
services provided (e.g., assertive community treatment); number of and 
type clients served (e.g., Medicaid, Medicare, veteran, immigrants); 
telehealth use (e.g., current or prior to COVID-19 outbreak); and 
career satisfaction and burnout (e.g., very satisfied, ``I enjoy my 
work, I have no symptoms of burnout'').
    The target population will be a random sample of 5,000 licensed 
clinical behavioral health providers (licensed psychologists, licensed 
clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and 
licensed professional counselors) in states where email addresses are 
available with state licensure data.
    The primary objectives of the surveys are to:
     Better understand factors associated with challenges in 
both recruitment and retention at behavioral health provider 
organizations.
     Estimate the workforce needed to better address gaps in 
care for mental health and substance use disorder.
     Obtain new insights on staffing models for treatment of 
serious mental illness, such as assertive community treatment.
     Collect new data on use of peer support specialists, care 
coordinators, and pharmacists in behavioral health care.
     Assess whether state licensure data is a reliable data 
source for building a comprehensive database on clinical behavioral 
health practitioners who are actively providing client services that 
require licensure.
