In case you missed it: OhioMHAS Market Analysis Survey (closes on April 15)

The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is supporting the 2023 Behavioral Health Careers Education & Careers Awareness Market Analysis in Ohio communities. An independent research firm, Measurement Resources Company (MRC), has been contracted to conduct the market research.

Individuals invited to participate in this market research include: students and career counselors or advisors from Ohio colleges, universities, high schools, and technical schools; personnel from employment assistance programs; current and past members of Ohio’s behavioral health workforce, and employees from related fields.

The results of the market analysis will provide OhioMHAS and its partners with a report of current awareness and perceptions of behavioral health career paths, the reasons employees in related fields are not entering the behavioral health field or why employees are leaving the field, and communication strategies for recruiting behavioral health workers.  

This research will inform the state’s public awareness and education efforts and campaigns around workforce programs and initiatives.

The survey will be open from January 25 to April 15, 2023. Here is the link to the survey. 

Paper surveys can be made available upon request. Please contact Christian Hall by sending an email to to request paper copies of the survey, or for help with any technical issues you experience with the online survey. All respondents will remain anonymous.
