SF Avatar Clinical Workgroup

The Clinical Work Group is committed to a consensus building process that represents our systems of care across disciplines and service modalities including substance abuse, mental health, community based organizations, and civil service programs.

Core Workgroup Membership will be limited to about 10 participants based upon areas of interest, program and service representation needed.  We strive to get input from a wide range of sources outside of the Core Workgroup including hosting focus groups, soliciting participation on a task force, via electronic communication (e-mail, web posting, surveys), and convening subcommittees around subject areas that require more in depth discussion.
