September 25, 2019: Oregon’s Mental Health System: Challenges, Opportunities and Innovations

Join us as we take a deep dive into Oregon’s mental health system. Steve Allen, the state’s new behavioral health director, will share his impressions, followed by a panel of mental health and substance use treatment leaders. And, there’ll be plenty of time for audience questions. Today, one in six Oregonians live with mental illness, many of whom face systemic and cultural barriers to accessing the services and supports they need to live a full life.
