WHAT

Contra Costa Behavioral Health Services (CCBHS), a division of Contra Costa Health Services, invites anyone interested in discussing early childhood mental health to participate in the Early Childhood Mental Health Community Forum.

The forum offers the opportunity to learn about early childhood mental health, communicate needs in the community and meet with service providers to discuss current issues relevant to this topic. These discussions help inform future use of local Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) funding.

WHY:
