Multnomah County Commission Chair Ted Wheeler has agreed to speak at an open public meeting about County mental health services, and about his decision to vote against a proposal to create a psychiatric emergency center.
The creation of such a center was a key recommendation of the Mental Health / Public Safety Initiative launched by Portland Mayor Tom Potter after the death of James Chasse while in custody of the Portland police and the Multnomah County jail. Wheeler was a member of the Initiative’s panel.
