  • 2. lessons learned which could be applied to their process. Jennifer, Marion County-sitting in for Lisa Miller, she said the newer strategy is based on an idea shared from Linn County we developed a survey for local retailers on recognizing signs etc.. Kelly Locey -Environmental scan assessment piece is sweeping everyone-we are working more with the TPEP coordinator, hired an intern to work on that for us. Did environmental scan for alcohol, tobacco, lottery etc. Good news is the lottery machines are in sight of employees. Working on presentation that integrates tobacco, alcohol and gambling. Jennifer Versteeg- Finished a move into an integration of health promotion unit. Promotion prevention team is all together. Conducting a community assessment. Jerry O’Sullivan-Working on a healthy corner store project with the youth prevention team to do surveys about what they sell, what they advertise and what the profits are. We are working on sharing with the retailers alternatives to bad products. Becca Hueser- We have lots going on with us here. We did the environmental scan of all retailers in our county who sell lottery, alcohol and tobacco and worked closely with the TPEP coordinator. It was a good marriage and the surveys are just wrapping up. We did compliance checks with OLCC and had a 78% compliance rate. Consistently apply compliance checks. Doing some data mapping and the environmental scans and corner story assessments. Working to increase the number of prepared problem gambling treatment on the youth side so we will have two more and be able to provide culturally competent services for problem gambling. Will be working on alternatives to suspension. Julie Hynes- Completed an environmental scan and gambling did not come up as an issue in the assessment. Coming up with other. We are facing this problem that people do not see that problem gambling is an issue. CCO are making lots of changes and trying to get the tracking of the integration. Does anyone have any ideas on what we are able to evaluate with our progress. We talk about problem gambling with assessment and mental health first aid. We look at our assessment but problem gambling we have not set up tools or questions for addressing this issue. With the CCO we are dealing with the SBIRT and we need to get problem gambling questions into this assessment. Deanne Mansveld-Great experience at the National Conference, I was a little disappointed with the prevention stuff. Overall, it was a great experience and was a lot of fun and working on integration.
  • 3. Shawn Martinez-echoing the sentiments from the Deanne. The prevention has really improved. It was not quite what I was looking for so it was good. June Meeting Review: Did not have them readily available to view. Individuals should check them out at problem gambling and if there are issues, please alert Natasha. AMH Prevention Update Advertising/lottery Responsible gambling The Department of Justice Ruling that the Oregon Lottery may not spend their administrative dollars on advertisements targeted to people needing problem gambling treatment. I would like to make sure everyone understands that this issue has no impact on our problem gambling prevention and treatment funding to providers and counties. Those dollars are intact and other solutions are being pursued to ensure that these crucial advertisements can be at some point restored. Debbie Utley-Is there anything we can do to help move that forward with the budget. If there is any talking points that would be supportive. What are the facts how many – we could update the 2011-2012 facts to reflect current thinking.
