Roundtable with Elected Officials
Updated: Jul 13, 2021
Positive Directions was recently honored to host US Senator Chris Murphy, State Rep. Jonathan Steinberg (Westport), and Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe at our office, along with community partners Fairfield Public Schools, Kids in Crisis, Mid-Fairfield Child Guidance, NAMI, and Westport Human Services, for a roundtable on behavioral health needs during COVID and beyond. Mental health and substance use issues have increased during COVID, and we were grateful for the opportunity to discuss needs that may be able to be addressed through the federal COVID relief bill under development.
