Director of Public Health is particularly interested in learning more about the

‘significant issues’ of mental health, opioid abuse in Mohave County.

 

MOHAVE COUNTY – Patti Mead, director of the Mohave County Department of Public Health, is one of 40 public health officials chosen from across the country to participate in an eight month Behavioral Health Training program offered by the National Council for Behavioral Health. 

 

The program is supported and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support.

The program addresses the pressing needs of participants and their communities, including the opioid crisis, integrated care and trauma-informed practices. 

Participants have access to tailored in-person training, webinars and other resources.  They also attend a two day training at the annual National Council Conference in April, where they will be trained in mental health first-aid.

“I’m very excited to be included in this program sponsored by the CDC. Both mental health and opioid abuse are significant issues in Mohave County. Learning more about the issues, their impacts on society, and resolutions will be very beneficial for our health department and our communities.” said Mead.
