The North Dakota Behavioral Health Workforce Development project was initiated in August 2017 by the North Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS).

The project’s goals are to:

  1. Develop a multi-focused behavioral health workforce strategic implementation plan for the state of North Dakota.
  2. Create a new peer support specialist certification process that meet’s billable Medicaid reimbursement and can be implemented within the state of North Dakota.
  3. Provide sustainable efforts including data tracking, reports, and ongoing consultation for DHS, legislative committees, or subgroups for both goals one and two.
