ICYMI: Community mental health forum video now available
Sonoma County is experiencing a rise in substance use disorders, homelessness and a shortage of services to address an unprecedented mental health crisis.
In response, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors and Department of Health Services recently convened a first-of-its-kind summit of behavioral health professionals from across the county for a listening session on the mental health care needs of the community.
The participants online and in person at the Finley Center in Santa Rosa heard panel discussions on substance use disorder and the opioid crisis, mental health and wellness needs, crisis services and suicide prevention, as well as workforce challenges and solutions.
