Local Behavioral Health Boards and Commissions – Statewide Training

Training Description

“Behavioral Health Boards and Commissions 101″ was offered on Saturday, morning, 9:30 am – 11:30 am. This training provided 2 hours of discussion about the roles and responsibilities of mental/behavioral health board members. Board members learned about the requirements for Ethics Training and about how to participate in a meeting that conforms to the requirements of the Brown Act.

The second half of the day focused on the “Evaluation of Boards and Services” from 12:15 – 2:30 pm. First, we discussed evaluation of your board: the way meetings are conducted, the way your board works and the work that you accomplish. Secondly, we discussed some aspects of reviewing or evaluating services provided to the clients of your mental/behavioral health board; evaluation of programs, evaluation of facilities, and client satisfaction with services/programs. Board members came prepared with their questions about board membership and be ready for a great discussion.
