County Chair Agrees to Talk About Mental Health Services

Multnomah County Commission Chair Ted Wheeler has agreed to speak at an open public meeting about County mental health services, and about his decision to vote against a proposal to create a psychiatric emergency center.

The creation of such a center was a key recommendation of the Mental Health / Public Safety Initiative launched by Portland Mayor Tom Potter after the death of James Chasse while in custody of the Portland police and the Multnomah County jail. Wheeler was a member of the Initiative’s panel.
