The meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 18, in the Wind River Room of the WLRC’s Larsen Professional Development Center.
The agenda for Tuesday features a discussion about court diversion, with a focus on the Crisis Intervention Teams pilot program.
There will also be a report outlining services and policy recommendations for vulnerable adults, including an explanation of a draft bill that would create a vulnerable adult council in Wyoming.
The task force will consider four other pieces of draft legislation regarding vulnerable adults as well:
–vulnerable adults-civil cause of action
–DFS and law enforcement-cross reporting
–emergency protective services-effective period
–vulnerable adult definition
The final item on Tuesday’s agenda is a discussion on future use of the WLRC.
The task force will reconvene at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 19, in the same location to discuss adolescents with high behavioral needs, K-12 mental health services, and Wyoming’s ongoing behavioral health redesign.
Wyoming Rep. Lloyd Larsen, R-Lander, is a member of the task force.
