The Iowa 2012 General Assembly charged the Iowa Department of Public Health with creating a mental health and disabilities group to make workforce recommendations in support of services to Iowans (Senate File 2315, Division II, Section 24). The Department of Human Services Mental Health Redesign Initiative was already underway since 2010. Workforce supply is a critical element of service capacity. IDPH leadership reviewed the legislative language, conferred with DHS leadership, appointed the workforce, and began deliberations in fall 2012.
