Beginning this month, Sen. Sara Gelser, D-Corvallis, and OHA Director Lynne Saxton are traveling the state to hear from adolescents, adults and families who have had difficulties accessing mental health and substance use disorder treatment in Oregon.
On September 23, 2015, the Oregon Health Authority will host the first of six statewide town hall meetings for individuals and families to talk about their experiences.
While these meetings are for consumers and their families; advocates, providers, educators, first responders and other community members are encouraged to attend as listeners.
