The 2021 Behavioral Health Workforce Surveys are designed to provide important insights on the workforce in treating mental health and substance use disorders. The first survey is a one-time Survey of Behavioral Health Workforce Employers that aims to obtain input from behavioral health provider organizations regarding workforce needs and challenges with recruitment and retention. The second survey is of Clinical Behavioral Health Providers that aims to assess the strength of state licensure data for determining the number of actively practicing clinicians serving clients with mental illness or substance use disorders.

The purpose of this one-time data collection is to better understand and document the available supply of behavioral health providers and where workforce investments are needed. This information will help enable SAMHSA and the National Mental Health and Substance Use Policy Laboratory (Policy Lab) to meet the 21st Century Cures Act goals of ensuring better coordination across the entire Federal Government related to addressing the needs of individuals and their families with serious mental illness or serious emotional disorders, to promote evidence-based practices and service delivery models, and evaluate models that would benefit from further development and expansion.
