Coos County SIM Workshop testimonial
"Coos County owes a great big “thank you” to the Oregon Center on Behavioral Health and Justice Integration for their February 5, 2018, workshop on Sequential Mapping. Their presenters, Carol Speed and Ari Wagner led us through a process of learning keys to success in integrating mental health and public safety efforts in dealing with the mentally ill, analyzing local gaps and opportunities, and finally establishing priorities for moving ahead with a local action plan. Their expertise and leadership was evident throughout the workshop. At the end of the day we walked away not only with a better understanding of the issues involved but more importantly an action plan. It was hands down the best workshop I have ever attended."
