Virtual Behavioral Candidate Forum Videos

Despite having to retool and reschedule our Behavioral Health Candidate Forum due to the Coronavirus situation, we are pleased to have taken the whole thing online and made it virtual. It was a great success! We owe a HUGE thank you to the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch for their technical assistance, and for making it possible for all of us – as well as every Montanan – to be able to participate in the process.

Additionally, we are sincerely thankful to each candidate that participated and shared their thoughts on the important matters we in the behavioral health community face.

I have asked Tim Fox's administration to post the service of the Child and Family Ombudsman that he oversees on his website since it is a public service under his office. After three separate request, one of which was confirmed this would be done, still nothing is available for public access. His office oversees the Ombudsman, yet they allow serious crimes against families to go unchecked. His office has done nothing to hold our government and his office accountable to law. His words sound good, but his action have not served Montana well.
