Area residents are invited to share personal experiences on children’s mental health services at a listening post hosted by Great Prairie AEA set for Monday, October 8 at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center, 200 North Main, Fairfield from 6:00-7:30 pm.
Listening posts are being hosted by at locations across Iowa on behalf of the Children’s System State Board established by Gov. Kim Reynolds in April. The board will review the information gathered from these listening posts as part of its charge to review existing resources and develop a strategic plan with specific recommendations to implement a better approach to help children with mental health issues. This report is due to the legislature on Nov. 15.
Two additional opportunities have been created for parents/children unable to attend the time/date/places outlined above.
A survey is available for those unable to attend a listening post. The deadline is Oct. 12.
