Virtual Public Forum – Mental Health Services for Adults

In by Karen Holloway


Event Details


Furthering its efforts at ‘Breaking Through’ the stigma surrounding mental health issues, the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral and Community Health (DBCH) will host a free public forum to discuss the mental health services for adults in Dutchess County.

Families, caregivers and local stakeholders are encouraged to attend, as all input received at the forums will help shape the County’s 2022 Local Services Plan.


The forum will be held virtually, and residents can log on to dutchessny.gov/forumcomments, select the forum they’d like to attend, and DBCH will send them a link and a call-in number to the forum upon completing registration.


This discussion will include an update since the 2019 forum, guest speakers, information on resources available to local families and how they can access them, and a question-and-answer period for those attending.


For those unable to attend, DBCH welcomes written comments to be read aloud by the forum moderator. Individuals may submit comments online, fax comments to (845) 486-2829, or mail to: DBCH Forum Comments, 230 North Rd, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.
