The NC Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services (MH/DD/SAS) is kicking off a series of Town Hall meetings around the state with Deputy Secretary Kody Kinsley. The purpose of the Town Hall meetings is to provide MH/DD/SAS consumers, families, providers, and advocates an opportunity to share their feedback and experiences with Deputy Secretary Kinsley about ways to better support consumers and improve our public MHDDSAS services delivery with the overall mission of improving health outcomes and promoting the well being of all North Carolinians. Each Town Hall will begin with an overview from Deputy Secretary Kinsley about the state of NC’s Behavioral Health and IDD system including a vision for the future.

The first two scheduled Town Halls will take place in Wilmington NC on Jan. 30 and the second in Winston Salem on February 20. Additional Town Halls are being planned for other regions and areas including in the Vaya, Eastpoint, Partners and Sandhills catchment areas. Additional information will be shared with the public once the final details are confirmed. Please share the information with your network and constituents.
