Join us! A Community forum on the so-called “mental health crisis.”
Nov. 25 ~ 7pm
Grandview Calvary Baptist Church
The Mayor has declared a “mental health crisis”, giving parameters to both an election issue
and resource distribution. What is the likely impact of such a declaration? Is there a
crisis? How might we respond to such a declaration? Who is determining the issue?
Join us for a community forum oriented to explaining the issues from a variety of
concerned perspectives. We hope to provide a space where those labeled with mental
illness diagnoses, those professionally engaged in mental illness, and concerned
community members may gather together in an open dialogue. We will hear some of the
history and share analyses, experiences and questions.
Forum groundnotes will be provided by Karen Ward, Miriam Polman and Peter Bazovsky,
who bring diverse personal and professional experience to this important conversation.
