Connecting our Communities with Care 


Our country, our state, and our community are facing a mental health care crisis
unlike any time in our past. The needs of our friends and families are more
complex than ever and yet our systems for providing support have not been able to
keep pace with the growing and evolving need. The public and private sectors
must work together with less regard for their structural differences and more
undeterred commitment to addressing the critical needs. From government
agencies to private providers, it is time for us to unabashedly talk about the needs,
unselfishly share the resources that we all possess, and aggressively address the
issues. This crisis in our community impacts our work, our home, our friends, and
our families. It has become more that our professional obligation to help address
this issue…it should be a personal commitment for each of us as a citizen of this
country, this state, and this community that we do our part to create the change that
is needed. 

Participants in the “Connecting our Communities with Care” presentation:
 .  Will be able to identify many of the trends and critical needs for mental
health care services in the state of Idaho and the north Idaho region,
 . Will be able to cite examples of best practices and participants in
collaborative mental health care services in north Idaho,
 . Will be able to identify next steps and strategies for developing community
action plans,
. Will demonstrate a renewed sense of passion and purpose for engaging in a
community commitment to care initiative.
