Reminder: Rep. Vicki Kraft holds mental health forum Tuesday, Jan. 7 at WSU Vancouver

Rep. Vicki Kraft is inviting mental health experts and providers from throughout Clark County to join her Tuesday, Jan. 7, at Washington State University (WSU) Vancouver for a discussion on the mental health care needs in the local area and potential solutions that could address those issues.

“My objective in hosting this forum is to bring together providers, non-profit organizations, legislators, government officials, and all who work with the mentally ill, so that we can coalesce toward effective solutions that best serve Southwest Washington,” noted Kraft.

A presentation will be provided on Clark County's Medicaid behavioral health capacity, followed by two panel discussions focusing on mental health priorities, needs and solutions.

The Mental Health Services Forum for Clark County will be held Tuesday, Jan. 7, 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at WSU Vancouver's Dengerink Building, VDEN 110 Lecture Hall, 14204 N.E. Salmon Creek Ave., Vancouver.
