Is There Data on Availability of RTs in Indiana and Nationally?
The press release in part read:
"The Indiana General Assembly passed HB 1210. This bill creates mental health services development programs to provide incentives to attract psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurses, and public sector psychiatrists to practice in Indiana. It creates the mental health services development programs board to administer the programs."
Reading this on the heals of yesterday's post on possible RT shortages, made me wonder if we have data on the availability of recreational therapists in Indiana and nationally to work in mental health. I haven't seen such data. It would seem timely for someone to conduct a study to determine the availability of RTs in Indiana and nationally.
