According to research conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation, the number of adults in the U.S. reporting symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder increased four-fold from 2019 to January 2021. In response to this reality, the San Diego Workforce Partnership is launching this new program to address the increased demand for public mental health services and prepare San Diegans for careers in an industry with high growth potential.
