MULTCO hosting Community Listening Session on Mental Health
Accessible and effective mental health care is one of the most important needs facing Multnomah County. In order to address what often may seem like a fragmented system of care, Multnomah County and Human Services Research Institute (HSRI) are conducting a study of the local mental health system.
A Community Listening Session on Mental Health is being held on Monday, December 11, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to meet with community members and learn about their experiences regarding current resources and needs. Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran will host the session at the Multnomah County Central Library in the U.S. Bank Room at 801 S.W. 10th Avenue. The goal is to help the County and HSRI team understand how the system is actually working in the county so as to identify opportunities for meaningful change.
