The Behavioral Health Workforce Tracker is a customizable interactive map that allows you to visualize the geographic distribution of the behavioral health workforce by provider type and by Medicaid acceptance status.
The map uses novel data sources: IQVIA Xponent, to identify prescribers of behavioral health medications (psychiatrists, addiction medicine specialists, primary care physicians, advanced practice providers, and other physicians); and state licensure data, to identify psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, and licensed marriage and family therapists.

Please keep in mind that assessing the adequacy of supply relative to need is an ongoing challenge. The data presented in the Behavioral Health Workforce Tracker is not meant to provide absolute indications of whether the supply of the behavioral health workforce is adequate to meet need for behavioral health treatment. There is no established relationship between levels of behavioral health need indicators and need for treatment, nor any standards of the appropriate number or type of behavioral health practitioners per population size. In any particular location, need and supply may also depend on factors not accounted for in this tool. Users may adjust indicators and interpret the data at their own discretion.
The Behavioral Health Workforce Tracker was created in partnership with HealthLandscape and was funded under grant number FG000028 from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
