#papafa #shareyourstory

Your lived experiences are hard-earned, and more powerful than you may think. Now is the time to share them and let the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s (Pennsylvania’s) Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS), and Mercer Government Human Services Consulting (Mercer) know your thoughts on behavioral health care in Pennsylvania.


This is a time-sensitive opportunity. Don't wait to sign up.


The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s (Pennsylvania’s) Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) and Mercer Government Human Services Consulting (Mercer) thanks you for volunteering for the member discussions.We are having these discussions to learn about good changes you have noticed with your services. We also want to talk about things you think could be better. For the last 15 years, OMHSAS has worked hard to improve the way members received behavioral health services. This discussion will be a chance for you to give us important information and share your experiences with services over the last 15 years. In the future, Mercer will hold discussions with members on recommendations they have for the future of behavioral health services in Pennsylvania.

Both of these discussions will occur on January 4th; the first one (for adult members and their families) will be held from 12:30-2 pm. The second (for children members, adolescents, and transition-aged youth and their families) will be held from 2:30-4 pm.
