People First, Coordinated Care Listening Forum

The purpose of this forum is to obtain input from the people who use multiple services in the areas of health care, addiction, mental health, and developmental disabilities and their families regarding their experiences. We also welcome input from providers and others. Our goal is to obtain insight on how to improve quality and outcomes, as well as coordinate support for people who have needs across multiple systems.
