On Wednesday, December 7, 2016 the DRC of King County was proud to attend The 20th Annual King County Behavioral Health Legislative Forum at Town Hall Seattle. The focus of the forum included addiction and mental health recovery. The speakers included King County Executive Dow Constantine, National Council on Behavioral Health President and CEO Linda Rosenberg, and Jim Vollendroff, King County’s Behavioral Health and Recovery Division Director. The DRC was impressed to hear the strides King County has made to increase the availability of mental health and addiction services. We were inspired to hear the plan for the future, and we look forward to collaborating with our elected officials and other non profit agencies to provide access to conflict resolution services to this vulnerable population.
