Candidate Forum To Focus On Post-Fire Mental Health And More
Of the thousands of people who had to evacuate from encroaching fires in September, nearly all emerged unscathed. Physically, anyway.
The loss of thousands of homes and the very act of evacuating rattled the minds of many people who now need comforting and mental healthcare. NAMI-Southern Oregon, the regional chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is keeping tabs on the situation.
The chapter is hosting a forum for candidates for legislative and local offices on October 3rd, focused on issues like access to mental health services and rebuilding from the fires. Real Solutions Coalition is a partner in the forum.
