Important Addiction Forum to Get Dutchess County, NY Public Opinion
The past year or two has been tough on all of us and unfortunately, vulnerable members of our communities have not been excluded from the stress. Very often, community groups gather to talk with the public in order to help and get information out to people so they know that there are services that can help. The Department of Behavioral & Community Health in Dutchess County is one of those groups.
The DBCH regularly holds forums to help them determine what would be most helpful to the public. They have three forums scheduled so far this spring and one of them is on the calendar for this Thursday (April 14, 2022). The forums are held virtually which makes it easy to attend. DBCH does ask that you register in advance if you want to participate and that is as easy as logging on to dutchessny.gov/forumcomments or just clicking here.
