Department of Behavioral & Community Health (DBCH) presents

Community Conversation Forum
2020 Public Forums

Each year, the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health (DBCH) invites individuals, families, providers, and interested citizens to discuss the service needs of developmentally disabled individuals, chemically dependent individuals, adults living with mental illness, and children/youth with emotional issues and/or substance use issues. To begin work on our service plans for the upcoming year, we need your input to better understand what services need improvement for you, your family, and the people you serve. All forum sessions will be held in the DBCH Training Room (Entrance #1), 230 North Road, in Poughkeepsie. We hope you can attend our 2020 Public Forums.

If you are unable to attend, or do not feel comfortable speaking in public, we still want your voice to be heard. We encourage you to submit your comments below which will be shared at the forum.
