Do you or a family member have experience in the local mental health system? Community members are encouraged to lend their insight by serving on the Humboldt County Behavioral Health Board (BHB). Members advocate for behavioral health services to the Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Mental Health branch, as well as advise on alcohol and other drug issues.
BHB members serve three-year terms and meet monthly with DHHS staff and county representatives. Subcommittees of the board include the AOD/Dual Recovery Committee, Children and Families Committee and Transition-Age Youth Committee.
For more information, please email DHHS Administrative Secretary Joe McManus at firstname.lastname@example.org. An application can be filled out online at www.humboldtgov.org/426/Behavioral-Health-Board.
