DEKALB — The DeKalb County Community Mental Health Board needs a focus group to identify barriers to accessing behavioral healthcare services and gaps in service, according to a news release from the board.
Meetings will be held Thursday between 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Sandwich Public Library 925 S. Main St., Sandwich; 3 to 4:30 p.m. inside the Freight Room at the DeKalb County Community Foundation 475 DeKalb Ave., Sycamore, or 6 to 7:30 p.m. inside the Five Seasons Room at the Community Outreach Building, 2500 N.

The board is especially interested in hearing from parents of children of any age that have experience accessing the behavioral healthcare system, according to the release. The board said its top priority is to improve access to services for children 7 and under.
The focus group’s goal is to walk through scenarios of child and family experiences in finding and accessing behavioral healthcare services in the county, according to the release.
