HEADS UP! Important New Resource!

November 11, 2022

Heads up!

The FY 2022-23 Office of Mental Health (OMH) Budget includes $9 million annually to support a new program to support licensed community mental health programs in the recruitment and retention of psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners (NPs).

OMH is establishing: The OMH Community Mental Health Loan Repayment Program (OMH CMHLRP) to support designated community programs in this effort.

The NYS Council has advocated for years for a dedicated stream of funds to assist our members with recruitment and retention of Psychiatrists and PNPs.  We are grateful to OMH for hearing our pleas and responding with this new Program, discussed in depth at the link below.
