Governor Mark Gordon will host a town hall meeting in Casper on February 13 to discuss mental health concerns. The meeting will be open to the public and will take place at the Casper College Wheeler Music Hall from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. The governor is eager to hear from local communities about ongoing efforts to increase awareness of available resources and improve access to mental health care. Representatives of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, as well as local elected officials, are invited to attend the meeting.
Governor Gordon has made improving access to mental health resources a top priority. He believes that community engagement is crucial in identifying priorities and addressing significant problems. During last week’s initiative launch, he introduced his “Mental Health Roadmap,” which aims to advance systemic behavioral health reform in Wyoming. The roadmap identifies five critical pillars that can help improve outcomes for those struggling with mental health issues, which the governor will discuss during the Casper Town Hall meeting.
The town hall serves as an opportunity for community members to share their thoughts and experiences directly with the governor and other officials. The meeting provides a platform for local communities to voice their concerns and offer input on how to address mental health issues in the region. The governor and attendees will engage in discussions about strategies aimed at tackling Wyoming’s mental health crisis and making progress toward ensuring more resources are available for those who need them.
Overall, this town hall meeting is an important opportunity for Governor Gordon to connect with local communities and gain valuable insights into the challenges faced by those struggling with mental health issues in Wyoming. By working together, we can find solutions that prioritize both individual well-being and overall community health.
