CCCMHMR is required by law to develop an implementation plan, known as the Local Network Development Plan. This applies only to mental health services that are funded by the state.

The purpose of the public forums is to gather public input on local service needs and priorities, guidance on developing a net work of prov iders and maximize consumer choice and access to qualified service providers in the community. The public input will be ref lected in the plan.

The desired outcome is for consumers to have choice from among multiple service providers and for CCCMHMR to provide management and oversight of the provider network.

The public will have time to ask questions after the gathering of public input and the presentations.
