Community Listening Session on Mental Health System

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.

As part of the study, we are meeting with members of the community to learn about your experiences regarding current resources and needs, and hear your thoughts on what a better mental health system could look like. This listening session will allow us to get feedback from many people at once and allow us to hear from one another. The goal is to help the County and the HSRI team understand how the system is actually working in Multnomah County so as to identify opportunities for meaningful change.

The Listening Session will occur on Monday, December 11, from 5:30-7:30pm at:

Multnomah County Central Library - U.S. Bank Room
801 SW 10th Ave, Portland, OR 97205

Food will be provided. Childcare and translation services are available by request. Let us know if you’ll need childcare, translation services or any other accommodations when you RSVP so that we may plan accordingly.
