Why Mental Health Matters in Wake County

Join us as we discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding an extremely important, yet rarely discussed, issue facing our area today—mental health reform.

The consolidation of Wake, Durham, and Johnston counties’ mental health management combined with closing Dorthea Dix and reduced funding has created a grave need that shouldn’t be ignored.  On Thursday, Dec. 6, government officials and business leaders from across the industry will share their perspectives on what you can expect in the future and how can we improve our ability to deliver this critical care. 

Learn more about the following key issues:

  • North Carolina's plans for mental health programs and funding from Rep. Nelson Dollar, chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee and member of the Subcommittee on Mental Health
  • State of mental health reform from Michael Watson of NC Health & Human Services
  • What consolidation means for Wake County from Ellen Holliman of Alliance Behavior Health
  • How to move this vital issue forward from Jack Naftel of UNC Hospitals and Doug Blizzard of Capital Associated Industries

You'll gain a clear understanding of where Wake County currently stands on the issue and what we can do as business leaders.
