Webinar provides overview of plans to expand community-based mental health treatment

Thu, 01/09/2020

A panel of state agencies will discuss Governor Jay Inslee’s plan to create community capacity for treatment of civilly committed people with serious mental illness, during a webinar from 2 to 3 p.m. January 17.

Gov. Inslee's 2019-2021 state operating and capital budgets made significant investments to increase community capacity so that individuals can remain close to their family and friends and be better connected to resources upon discharge from their civil commitment.

The webinar will provide an update from four administrations charged with implementing these projects. Representatives from the Department of Social and Health Services' Behavioral Health Administration (DSHS-BHA) and Aging and Long-term Care Services Administration (DSHS-ALTSA), the Department of Commerce, and the Health Care Authority (HCA) will present about various projects.
