The Mental Health Policy Roundtable is an educational program to exchange ideas and transfer knowledge between seasoned leaders of the mental health policy field and newcomers, such as students, junior policy staff, or others interested in these issues. The roundtable was created in 1998 in Washington, D.C., funded by the MacArthur Foundation, and was restarted by its founder, Laura Van Tosh, in King County last year. It is a volunteer effort and all meetings are free and open to the public.
