King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division (BHRD) is excited to host the virtual 2021 Behavioral Health Legislative Forum.
Join us online on Tuesday, December 7th, 2021, from 5:30 – 8:00pm. The event is free and open to all. Registration is open now, and the event is less than two weeks away!
The annual behavioral health legislative forum is an evening for State legislators, treatment providers, behavioral health care workers, and the recovery community to come together. We’ll be talking about the challenges facing the behavioral health community and sharing both King County and legislators’ top priorities for mental health and substance use disorder in 2022.
Whether you’re a seasoned advocate or newly getting more involved because of the huge impact of the pandemic on behavioral health, the forum is an excellent opportunity to make your voice heard at open virtual conversations with legislators from your district.
And, in what is always the highlight of the evening, you’ll hear four incredible personal recovery stories.
The forum will include:
- Virtual table discussions for community members with legislators, by district
- Remarks from the King County Executive
- Presentation of King County legislative priorities
- Compelling personal recovery stories
- Legislator and county councilmember perspectives and priorities
Check out the event landing page for updates and to see the growing list of over 25 legislators and elected officials who will be participating.
You can also help us spread the word about the legislative forum using the social media toolkit on the landing page. The toolkit makes it easy for you to share info about the forum with friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, clients, peers, allies, and advocates. Thanks in advance for your help!
We can’t wait to join our partners, provider agencies, legislators, advocates, and community members at the Behavioral Health Legislative forum again. See you there!
