ROUNDTABLE FORUM INCARCERATION OF THE MENTALLY ILL:
Punitive or Restorative Justice? Sponsored by David's Hope and the Arizona Mental Health and Criminal Justice Coalition
WEDNESDAY JULY 27, 5:30 - 7:30 PM
GLENDALE PUBLIC LIBRARY MAIN AUDITORIUM 5959 W. Brown St. Glendale AZ 85302
Please join us in this non-adversarial forum, for a mediated discussion of the care and treatment of those with mental illness as their lives intersect with our criminal justice system. Our goal is to bring together individuals with diverse perspectives and experiences. We will be taking a look at the path those with mental illness travel in Arizona. Why are Arizonans living with mental illness almost ten times more likely to end up incarcerated than in treatment? Why is the path to prison so easy to find for those living with a mental disorder? Letâ€™s explore these questions together as we work to increase collaboration between our mental health and criminal justice systems.
