State licensure is a challenge for many internationally trained mental health professionals

by Andy Steiner | MinnPost

August 12, 2023 | Ollie Schiefelbein, Internationally Trained Professionals navigator at the Institute shares the challenges internationally trained mental health professionals face as they work to relicense in Minnesota. Our program has been working hard to address the needs of our clients and address the significant mental health workforce shortage in Minnesota.

“In 2022, the nonprofit (International Institute of Minnesota) was one of seven Minnesota organizations awarded grants as part of the Internationally Trained Professionals Program administered by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development  (DEED), a grant designed to help more internationally trained health care workers gain licensure in the state.”
