HAVE YOUR SAY!!!Town Hall Meetings on Developmental Disabilities, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse Services


Town Hall Meetings on Developmental Disabilities, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse Services

THE COALITION represents individuals and 40 organizations statewide that advocate for persons needing services and supports for mental health, developmental disabilities, and addictive diseases.

This year, the Coalition is sponsoring regional town hall meetings ,instead of legislative breakfast meetings in Raleigh.

These town hall meetings will provide opportunities for people to comment on their need for services and how state budget cuts have affected their lives.

Legislators, elected officials, local management entity (LME) staff, organizations, providers, self advocates and families are all invited to attend.

These listening sessions will:

• Provide a brief program on current budget cuts and the future budget outlook

• Offer an opportunity to share your opinions about services and supports; in person, in writing, or online

• Update you on how to make a difference on these issues

TIME: All meetings are from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Doors will open at 6:00 PM. Program begins at 6:30.
