Issue Statement Process Information

One of CCSM’s duties is to provide feedback to state government about local and statewide issues. We have a process that generates what is called an issue statement. This is a document that addresses a specific issue and gives solution-based recommendations on how to improve or make changes within Maine’s mental health system. Within this process, people are given an opportunity to provide feedback on each statement generated.

To be more inclusive and to allow more peer voices to be heard, we also attach “personal stories” to each Issue Statement we create. This allows for more personalized experiences to be shared in order to better illustrate how an issue affects our community. Each personal story will be left unedited with its original wording.  

Given the opportunity to provide feedback and personal stories, we hope our community feels more engaged and empowered by giving voice to important issues.
