Contra Costa Behavioral Health Services (BHS), a division of Contra Costa Health Services, invites anyone interested in learning about and discussing mental health and wellness supports in relation to peers, clients, consumers, or anyone interested in the topic to participate in a free community forum focused on the evolution of the Peer Movement.

The forum, part of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) community program planning process in Contra Costa County, offers the opportunity to learn about the Peer Movement and mental health and wellness supports and to hear from the community. There will be sharing of personal stories about mental health, wellness and recovery, while highlighting the evolution of the movement. BHS is holding the forum in partnership with the Native American Health Center (NAHC).
