Have you been affected by or are concerned about mental illness or substance use?

Do have ideas or strategies on new behavioral health programs, or how to engage the community on behavioral health issues?

If so, the San Diego Diego Health and Human Services Agency wants to hear from you.

The county will be gathering input from the public at community forums taking place throughout the region. The goal is to gather public opinions about the types of services needed in the region to address these and other issues.

The forums seek input on the following topics:

● Mental health and substance use prevention

● Innovations

● Community engagement strategies

Forums are being held at community-based locations such as schools and community centers on weekday evenings and late afternoons, and Saturday mornings to encourage community engagement and access.

The events are open to all who have an interest in providing suggestions about behavioral health services needed in the region.
