About the course

This program is designed to offer newly-elected county commissioners the opportunity to learn more about the three primary county human services program areas: (1) public health, (2) social services, and (3) mental health, substance abuse, and developmental disabilities. For each of these three areas, School of Government faculty members will explore the following questions: What do the local agencies do? How are the local agencies organized and governed? What are the county commissioners’ roles with respect to these agencies and services?
