Third Brainstorming Session on NE Valley Health Neighborhood Coalition VNR, Hillview Mental Health Center and Valley Care Community Consortium have co-sponsored two successful brainstorming sessions to talk about how behavioral health and other health care providers can work together in the Northeast Valley, particularly on an enhanced referral system. The third session is scheduled for Wednesday, August 6 from 3-5 pm at Hillview, and will focus on how NE Valley nonprofits can advocate (with City, County and State legislators and their staffs, among others) for more resources to support the high level of need for health and behavioral health services in this region. The session is free and refreshments will be provided. An action-oriented discussion about advocacy strategies will be led by prominent advocacy consultant Larry Kaplan. Progress also will be discussed about the coalition's current goals - a referral directory, a master roster of those participating in this coalition, and a possible pilot education program for health providers about mental health needs of their clients. For more information and to register, please contact VNR Project Coordinator Julaine Konselman at 818/677-2774 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
