HONOLULU (AP) — The state Department of Health is planning a dozen public townhall-style meetings around the state to discuss ideas on improving mental health services.

The effort is a result of a five-year, nearly $11 million grant that is aimed at transforming the delivery of those services.

The Hawaii Mental Health Transformation State Incentive Grant, which is in its final year, has supported a focus on community engagement, training, criminal justice, consumer, family and youth involvement, and other issues.

It’s administered by the department’s Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

The first meeting is scheduled in Kona, on the Big Island, at 1 p.m. on Monday, at the Neighborhood Place of Kona on Luhia Street.
