Throughout the past 50 years the WICHE Mental Health Program has been actively engaged in mental health workforce development activities for the West. The program has extensive expertise in regional planning, consensus-building, and knowledge synthesis and dissemination.
Policymakers and Researchers
WICHE provides a wide range of initiatives and information to support Western states' legislators and decision makers in public policy issues affecting higher education. Recognizing that the policy environment varies from state to state, we work closely with policymakers and education leaders in each WICHE state: fostering opportunities for discussion of issues and policy options; providing quantitative and qualitative information and analyses to support decision-making; identifying emerging issues; and tracking trends, particularly those of importance to the West.
