The challenge of creating a recovery-oriented mental health workforce includes developing training that is true to values of recovery, keeping up to date on practices that are evidenced based, and ensuring that training of such practices translate to real life experiences. Workforce development includes the development of curriculum, certification processes, collaboration with education partners, and internship experiences.
