Supporting the Direct-Care Workforce in Children’s Behavioral Health Programs in NH

Supporting the Direct-Care Workforce in Children’s Behavioral Health Programs in NH(2009). Melanie Wilson. 28 pp.

This study, funded by the NH Endowment for Health, looks hard at workforce issues in 16 organizations working with emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth in New Hampshire. The findings reveal frustrations on both sides: from administrators, who are constantly forced to do more with less; and from workers, who need both practical help and a greater sense that what they have to say about their clients actually matters. Are there fixes, even in these times? There are, the report concludes, but they involve thinking differently about old problems.
