Virtual Behavioral Health Candidate Forum

Our Behavioral Health Candidate Forum was originally scheduled to take place in Helena in May – and we were so looking forward to it! However, as the Coronavirus situation became more of a threat, we were forced to change our game plan. And that’s OK! All of us in the behavioral health community are no strangers to adapting. So, rather than calling it off altogether, we have moved the forum to an online format.

Hearing from the candidates for elected office in Montana is of the utmost importance for our community. Having the opportunity to hear each candidates’ thoughts on a variety of issues that will impact the health and wellbeing of all Montanans will help us be informed.

The Virtual Behavioral Health Candidate Forum will take place on April 30, 2020 starting at 2:00 p.m. To join the webinar for each office, simply click on the link that corresponds to the time slot and state office indicated. The schedule for participants is as follows:
