Federal Grant Boosts Rogue Valley Behavioral Health Recruitment
The Rogue Valley is already short on resources for mental health care. And the pandemic just made things work by forcing many providers to cut hours or at least in-person availability to clients.
OnTrack, the Medford-based behavioral health provider, just landed a multi-million-dollar grant to help train more counselors for addiction treatment and other behavioral issues. And it's a long-term project, meant to set up training for the next four years.
Sommer Wolcott, the Executive Director of OnTrack, visits with details of the plan, called On-PACE (for OnTrack Peer and Counselor Education).
