On Sunday, June 4th, from 1:00-4:30pm, the City of Eureka Mayor’s Initiative, in collaboration with Humboldt County Behavioral Health, will be hosting the second in a quarterly series of Community Health Town Halls. The topic this quarter is Dynamics of the Unhoused. The event will consist of a panel of professionals from different fields which interface with people experiencing homelessness. Each panelist will give a brief presentation on their background and program, and then the remainder of the event will be opened up for public questions.
The Community Health Town Halls are aimed at providing a dedicated forum to have respectful and safe dialogues around critical health and social issues in the community. Through education, discussion, and developing creative and collaborative solutions, the City hopes to bring our community together in supporting those experiencing challenges related to mental health, substance use, or homelessness. These are truly community-based problems which require community solutions, and we hope that you bring your questions, suggestions, and solutions to share with your fellow community members.
The Town Hall will be hosted in City of Eureka Council Chambers on the 2nd floor of Eureka City Hall, 531 K Street, Eureka. Doors will open at 1:00pm and there will be food and water free to attendees. The Town Hall will start at 1:30pm. The event will also be live streamed for viewing only on the City’s website at eurekaca.gov/meetings, as well as through Zoom and the City’s official Facebook Live account. To ask your question(s), you can attend in person or email your question ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notecards will be available for anonymous question submission for in-person attendees who do not want to ask their question in front of an audience.
Present at this event, Humboldt’s own chapter of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) will be tabling and accepting monetary donations. NAMI provides education and support to individuals experiencing mental health and substance use issues, as well as their family members. For more information on what your support of NAMI means, you can view their website at https://www.nami-humboldt.org/.
