The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Montana State University will present “How Is the Gallatin Behavioral Health Coalition Helping Solve Our Behavioral Health Issues?” at a February 10 Friday Forum. The event will be delivered online via Zoom from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Kirsten Smith, coordinator for the Gallatin Behavioral Health Coalition, will discuss the coalition’s goals and successes in addressing our community’s behavioral health issues. She will also describe what the coalition hopes to achieve moving forward.
The Gallatin Behavioral Health Coalition works to address the Gallatin Valley’s ongoing behavioral health needs and concerns for families, healthcare workers and emergency response professionals. The coalition’s mission is to enhance and implement an appropriate system of prevention, intervention, treatment and rehabilitation for community members so that every person receives the right service in the right place every time.
Kirsten Smith is the principal at Bloom Consulting, where she conducts research, policy, planning, facilitation and project management work across the lifespan, from pre-natal through the end of life, with projects that impact health, human services, economic and quality of life.
