Meetings and Discussions

The Council recognizes the great amount of work that has been done within the County and by other organizations to address the complex issues surrounding behavioral health. To ensure the Council heard a variety of viewpoints and perspectives, a series of public meetings were held. These meetings provided an opportunity for people to respond to the HSRI report and to share their organization's body of work.

Below is a timeline of meetings and links to where additional information can be found.

 Behavioral health is a key issue facing Pierce County residents. The Pierce County Council is endeavoring to address this issue and as part of that effort has hired Human Services Research Institute (HRSI) to prepare a report that will:

  • Identify behavioral health needs 
  • Catalog available behavioral health resources 
  • Determine behavioral health resource gaps
  • Provide recommendations for ensuring a comprehensive, cost-effective, and recovery oriented behavioral health system that meets the needs of Pierce County
