Governor Mark Gordon is set to host a Town Hall meeting in Casper on February 13, with the aim of addressing mental health care. The meeting will be open to the public and will take place at Casper College Wheeler Music Hall from 1:30 to 3 pm.
The Governor has prioritized improving access to mental health resources and believes that community engagement through these Town Halls has been critical in identifying priorities and issues. During the meeting, he will discuss his recently launched initiative, the “Mental Health Roadmap,” which aims to advance systemic behavioral health reform in Wyoming. The roadmap identifies five pillars that are essential for improving outcomes for those battling mental health issues, and Governor Gordon will outline these during the Casper Town Hall.
This Town Hall provides an opportunity for community members to directly engage with the Governor and other officials on their thoughts and experiences related to mental health care. Local communities can voice their concerns and provide input on how to address these issues in the region. The Governor and attendees will also discuss strategies aimed at addressing Wyoming’s mental health crisis and making progress toward ensuring that more resources are available to those who need them.
