Monday, October 19, 2015

Register to attend the Community Conversation about services and programs for children and youth or for people living with mental illness and substance use disorders.

Wednesday, October 28, 6:30-9pm at the Shoreline Conference Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98155, in the Shoreline Room at the north end of the facility.

More information:

King County’s Mental Illness and Drug Dependency (MIDD) is a one-tenth of one percent sales tax supporting programs and services for people living with mental illness and substance use disorders. It expires at the end of 2016 unless renewed by the County Council. Your feedback is needed to help the County plan for updated MIDD-supported services and programs should it be renewed in 2016.

The Youth Action Plan, adopted by the King County Council on June 15, 2015, will set King County’s priorities for serving infants through young adults and will guide and inform the County’s current annual investment of more than $75 million in services and programs serving infants through young adults. The Youth Action Plan calls on the County to effectively engage communities across the region on an ongoing basis.

The County believes effective engagement enables all communities to participate in a way that fosters trust, creates more effective services, programs and policies, and supports community-led solutions. In response to community feedback, we are coordinating our engagement efforts - information gathered at these Community Conversations will inform several County initiatives, including the MIDD, Youth Action Plan and should the levy pass, Best Starts for Kids.
