SUPPORT, EDUCATION AND ADVOCACY
A matter of life, strife or death
n the early- to mid-19th century, Dorothea Dix was advocating for the humane treatment of individuals with mental illness and the building of asylums to house and care for the insane who were imprisoned and abused. Nearly 200 years later, persons with mental illness continue to make-up a disproportionate number of inmates in our jails and prisons. Please join us as we spotlight what is a matter of life, strife or death. We promise this conference will be unlike any you have ever attended before! Registration information will be available by January 26, 2015.
