Dear Washington Mental Health Clinicians,

Many thanks to all the Washington mental health clinicians who have responded to the survey on Regence. If you have not yet done so, please click here to take the survey before the cutoff date of Jul 26.

The next Coalition meeting on Regence will be held on August 15 at Glaser Auditorium in Swedish Hospital from 9-12 pm. The meeting will include the results of the survey; a draft letter to OIC; summary of legal advice; assignments to five subcommittees; and the kind of question and answer period we had at the last meeting. If you plan to attend please let Cynthia Stover, Coalition Treasurer, know at by August 12.

The subcommittees will include writing position papers; social media campaign; publicity campaign; coordinating with other mental health groups; and coordinating with other consumer groups. If you are willing to be a chair of one of these subcommittees, please let me know.

All best,

Laura W. Groshong, LICSW, Mental Heath Advocate
