Invitation to participate in behavioral health inequities listening session

Crossposted from the King County Mental Illness and Drug Dependency (MIDD) program

With the Health Care Authority, the University of Washington Behavioral Health Institute is hosting provider listening sessions to gather information and opinions regarding inequities in behavioral health care. The information gathered from the listening sessions will help inform state-level policy recommendations that address inequities in behavioral health care. 

The team is seeking a diversity of identities, backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives from the behavioral health community representing the individuals we care for in behavioral health. They are particularly interested in elevating the voices of individuals with lived behavioral health experience, the BIPOC community, and those providing care in rural communities. 

Register for one of the listening sessions. You are welcome to participate in any session that works for your schedule, even if the focus of the session does not align with the urban or rural setting you represent.
