On Wednesday, January 23rd the Lane County Prevention Program along with Lane County Behavioral Health will be presenting their 2013-2015 Biennial Mental Health & Addictions Plan, as well as the Community Health Needs Assessment, during the regular meeting of the Mental Health Advisory/Local Alcohol & Drug Planning Committee. This information both details the current health and treatment needs of Lane County and outlines a proposed plan to address these needs.
“We think there is no better way to address the mental health and addictions needs of Lane County than to involve the community in the process,” says Lane County Prevention Program Supervisor, C.A. Baskerville.
The meeting will take place from 2:30PM to 4:00PM in room 198 at Lane County Mental Health (2411 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.) and all members interested in hearing about the state of mental health and addictions treatment in Lane County are encouraged to attend. At the end of the presentation there will be a question and answer portion where community members will have the opportunity to give feedback.
