Panel Discussion: Campaign for Treatment Not Trauma

November 29, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm UTC

Treatment Not Trauma Campaign Image

Join the University of Illinois Cancer Center, the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy and other co-sponsors for a timely conversation about the work ahead to support mental health wellness and people experiencing a mental health crisis. Chicago has established a Mental Health System Working Group to provide a plan to the Mayor by May 31, 2024, for how to reopen public mental health clinics that have been closed for over a decade as well as have healthcare and social workers, rather than police, respond to mental health emergencies.

This panel will discuss Chicago’s long history of organizing for public mental health services, the Treatment Not Trauma campaign, the importance of this for Black and Latinx communities, and how to ensure that mental health services are attentive to the needs of people with disabilities.
