From Office of Neighborhood Involvement:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
