Monthly Workshop – Future of Mental Health in Iowa

April 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Monthly Workshop – Future of Mental Health in Iowa

Right now, there is a bill in Iowa’s government to change the mental health system in Iowa. We currently have 13 Mental Health and Disability Services Regions which provide funding for services in their regions. This bill would change the number of districts in Iowa. It would also broaden the focus of services to include prevention, education, early intervention, treatment, recovery support, and crisis services programs.

This bill could have a big impact on our organizations. It will also affect the quality and diversity of mental health care in the state of Iowa. They are still taking public comment on this bill, which means you can have input.

Marissa Eyanson, the Director of the Division of Behavioral Health at the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services, will join us for this workshop. She’ll explain this bill, how it may affect your work, and how you can become involved.

This is an open group. No registration required.
