What: Community meeting regarding Oregon State Hospital’s Junction City campus

When: Thursday, Oct. 17, 6-7:30 p.m.

Where: Junction City High School auditorium, 1135 West Sixth Ave., Junction City

As part of its ongoing community outreach efforts in Junction City, Oregon State Hospital will host a community meeting Thursday, Oct. 17, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Junction City High School auditorium located at 1135 West Sixth Ave.

The hospital invites citizens of Junction City and the surrounding area to come learn about the hospital and the people it serves. In addition to a general overview of Oregon State Hospital, there will be an update on construction and a presentation from the Lane County chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Hospital leaders will answer participants’ questions and ask for recommendations for future outreach activities.

“We’re very excited to be joining the Junction City community,” said superintendent Greg Roberts. “We want our new neighbors to get to know us and understand the important work we do. We also want to talk about mental health treatment in general. Most people don’t know much about mental illness, and this is a great opportunity to start that conversation.”

For more information about the community meeting, please contact the Oregon State Hospital Public Affairs Office at 503-947-9982.
