County looks to fill vacancy on Great Rivers BH-ASO advisory board

Have you wanted to be involved somehow with behavioral health and substance use disorder services in your community? Do you have one to three hours per month to give? Here’s your chance to make a difference.

The Lewis County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is seeking a volunteer to represent Lewis County on the Great Rivers Behavioral Health Administrative Services Organization (GR BH-ASO) advisory board for a three-year term. The advisory board, which includes representatives from Lewis, Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, Pacific and Wahkiakum counties, is designed to help ensure that behavioral health providers promote the human dignity, health and independence of citizens living within its participating counties.

The advisory board meets from 2 to 4 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month (meetings are virtual at this time). Among their duties, members review and provide to the Great Rivers Governing Board comments on plans, budgets and policies; help identify resources to serve people with unmet needs; and provide opportunities for those who use behavioral health services – and their families and other interested community members – to be heard. Individuals in recovery are especially encouraged to apply to share their input and perspective.
