Nevada County Behavioral Health Director Phebe Bell was recently among 21 behavioral health professionals from across the country who completed the first-ever Equity-Grounded Leadership (EGL) Fellow Program, an 11-month course to develop skills centered on diversity, equity, and inclusion. The program is part of a national effort to train and support more leaders in behavioral health systems in bringing an equity lens to the work.

The California Healthcare Foundation provided funding for the participation of three leaders from the California public behavioral health system, including Bell. 

“I was privileged to be a part of this program and learn alongside an amazing group of behavioral health leaders from across the country. I look forward to using the tools and skills we developed together to improve access to our behavioral health system here in Nevada County,” Bell said.

The EGL Fellow Program helps leaders expand their knowledge and build experience in the Principles of Change, improve their facilitation skills to foster a safe space for collaboration, and learn by doing through community-driven collaborative projects. Participants had access to numerous experts in the field and were provided mentorship and support through coaches, advisors, and peers.
