Share Your Thoughts on Children's Mental Health Services

More articles »

If you have things to say about the mental health services available to Iowa kids, now is your chance!  The Iowa Department of Human Services has a planning grant to learn more about how to serve families.  Through that grant, the ASK Resource Center will hold meetings to learn about the needs of families and their youth with mental health needs. The meetings are being held in communities across the state, and are for family members and youth.  At these events, you can share thoughts and ideas about how to make services better.  You will also have the chance to connect with other family members and youth.

Focus groups will be held in Ottumwa (March 11), Davenport (March 12), Des Moines (March 25), Atlantic (March 26), Sioux City (March 27), and Cedar Rapids (April 1).  For full details and registration, click here.  Space is limited so please register for these events.
