Wednesday, November 18, 2015
Location: Wilson Auditorium
2471 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena
Time: 7:00 PM Business Meeting
7:30 PM—8:30 Speaker
Speaker: Attorney Jonathan Mandel
Mr Mandel will talk about navigating the criminal justice system for people with mental illness, and how such a situation might actually afford an envelope within which to provide enhanced outcome within a flawed mental health system. Jonathan will discuss strategies for people with symptoms of mental illness facing criminal charges. Contrary to popular belief, there may be instances where being arrested and taken into custody by law enforcement might open pathways to treatment options and oversight not otherwise available or affordable.
There will be no speaker in December. Instead we will have Volunteer Appreciation Night and the Christmas party.
