Symposium on Decriminalizing Disability: The Case for Crisis Response Services

November 21, 2019 - November 22, 2019

People with mental health and/or addiction needs are more likely to be victims of police shootings and are overrepresented in prisons and jails.
JOIN US. You are invited to attend a two-day community conversation in Baltimore on November 21st and 22nd at Coppin State University to learn about, prioritize and identify next steps to implement strategies to decriminalize disability and increase capacity of local behavioral health resources.
FREE TO ATTEND. Coffee and lunch will be provided. Space is limited so registration is required. Read more details and register now.
PREPARE. Before the symposium, please review the 2019 Baltimore Public Behavioral Health System Gap Analysis, as required by the Federal consent decree entered by the City of Baltimore and the United States Department of Justice in April 2017.
SHARE YOUR VIEWS. Whether or not you can attend the symposium, take a brief survey to tell us how YOU would prioritize the recommendations listed in Baltimore Public Behavioral Health System Gap Analysis (report linked above).
Please forward this email to spread the word about the symposium and the survey. Thank you for helping to improve experiences and health outcomes for all residents of Baltimore.
