Community Forum on Behavioral Health Campus and Jail Reconfiguration

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

The Health Leadership Coalition will host a community forum on the expanded mental and behavioral health care campus and jail reconfiguration of Proposition 1 on the upcoming mail-in ballot. Panel speakers will be: Russ Johnson, Lawrence Memorial Hospital; Dan Partridge, Health Department; Sandra Dixon, DCCCA; Matthew Faulk, Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center; Jason Hess, Heartland Regional Alcohol & Assessment Center; Bob Tryanski, Douglas County; Karin Denes-Collar , Heartland Community Health Center; and Shannon Oury, Lawrence-Douglas County Housing Authority. The Health Leadership Coalition is a group of leaders and experts who are working to implement a robust plan for an expanded behavioral health care system for people with mental illness and substance use disorders. Working in collaboration with the County, they have created a plan that moves the local system from one of crisis and incarceration to one of intervention, prevention and recovery.
