Counties Find Remote Supervision Program Helps Fill Gaps  

Key staff: Lucero Robles, LCSW, Director of Quality Assurance & Compliance  

CalMHSA’s workforce solution to help counties address shortages in clinical supervision has expanded to 11 counties since its inception less than one year ago. Currently, 61 county pre-clinician staff are using the program.  

CalMHSA’s partnership with Motivo Health gives counties access to the only provider offering to-scale remote supervision in California. Many counties that have pre-licensed staff but do not have access to enough clinical supervisors are participating so they can receive virtual clinical supervision through Motivo’s HIPAA-compliant platform. 

All program supervisors have completed a training to orient them to the Medi-Cal core client populations within county behavioral health.  

To participate, counties purchase individual remote supervision hours for their pre-licensed staff. Counties also have the option to purchase triad supervision (two associates, one supervisor) and group supervision (three to eight associates, one supervisor).
