Multnomah County Movie Screening and Community Listening Session on Mental Health

From Office of Neighborhood Involvement:

Multnomah County holding a Movie Screening & Community Listening Session on Mental Health on February 6

Due to a tremendous response to the December Community Listening Session on Mental Health, Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran is hosting another session that includes a movie screening on Tuesday, February 6. This Movie Screening & Community Listening Session on Mental Health will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the First Floor Boardroom of the Multnomah County Building at 501 S.E. Hawthorne Boulevard.

All are welcome to attend and the event is free. Seating is limited, so those who wish to attend should RSVP by February 1. The effort will be made to accommodate as many attendees as possible, but seating can only be guaranteed to those who RSVP.

The movie, Not Broken , is a one-hour documentary by Arizona Public Media about youth who have lived experience of mental illness. This event offers the opportunity to watch Not Broken as a community and share thoughts about a better mental health system. The county is especially interested in hearing about youth and family experiences. The information gathered will inform the deep analysis of the local mental health system by Multnomah County and Human Services Research Institute.

For those who wish to provide feedback about the mental health care system in Multnomah County but cannot attend the listening session, they can do so via the county’s feedback form, which will remain open until February 28.

Light snacks will be provided at the listening session, and childcare and translation services are available by request. Anyone who RSVPs should let us know if childcare, translation services, or any other accommodations are needed so that we may plan accordingly.

Anyone who has questions or needs further information may contact Commissioner Meieran by phone at 503-988-5220 or email to district1@multco.us.

January 2018 Meeting Recap – Senator Rod Monroe

Thank you to everyone who made it to our January 4th, 2018 meeting with special guest Senator Rod Monroe!  We were excited to have so many of our neighbors join us, as well as visitors from Portland Tenants United. We were thrilled to provide simultaneous Spanish translation at this meeting, and will continue to do so at future meetings.  Please help us spread the word!  We also have posters of upcoming meetings translated in Spanish, if you would like to help print and distribute.

At the beginning of our meeting we had community announcements from:

  • Carol Uhte from Multnomah County Library shared information on Holgate and Woodstock events.
  • Lane PTA is still collecting cans and bottles as well as hosting their 3rd annual School Beautification Party on April 21st, 9:00AM-12:00PM.  They also need volunteers for the PPS Clothing Closet on February 22nd.
  • Brentwood-Darlington Community Watch gave an update on pursuing “No Camping” park signage in conjunction with ONI.  They are also working on zombie house outreach and following up on the issues surrounding the corner of SE Flavel/SE 82nd (7-11, DaRon and Del Rancho motels).  To speak with 7-11 regarding this location, call 800-255-0711 or email 7-11custrel@7-11.com.

Following Community Announcements, Senator Rod Monroe spoke regarding his last session as well as some personal history of advocacy serving on various advisory boards.  He talked about the work during the last legislative session and then took questions from the audience.  Thanks to board member, Derek Covey, for taking two videos of that portion of this meeting.

During the second half, board members voted to approve the 2017-2018 Communications Funds Budget.

Official meeting minutes will be available in the next month or two, as they are approved by the board.
