At the March 10th meeting of the Governor's Task Force on Mental Health and Substance Abuse, key recommendations were identified by the three working groups of the Task Force- the Workgroup on Adults; the Workgroup on Children, Youth, and Families; and the Workgroup on Prescription Opioid Abuse, Heroin Resurgence, and Special Topics.
Task Force members asked for feedback from the community on the discussed recommendations from the work groups which can be found here. At a meeting on April 7th, the Task Force plans to identify which recommendations will be considered priorities for the upcoming legislative session that begins on April 25th.
NASW-NC weighed in on the recommendations. View our recommended priorities! We are committed to working with Task Force members, legislators, and appropriate state Department staff to ensure the priorities are carried out to best service North Carolina's needs.
