OCHN Board Meeting Public Comment Form

In order to maintain communication with individuals receiving public mental health services, their families/allies, and network service providers, OCHN's Board meetings are hybrid. All meeting participants attending in person or virtually are provided two opportunities to give public comment.

Please use this form to sign-up for one or both of the public comment sections. The meeting facilitator will alert you as to when it is your turn to speak.
