Location: Anderson Room of the Michigan Union
Speaker: PCAP Sponsored Panelists
Please join The Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) for a panel discussion on the mental health needs of incarcerated and returned citizens. Management of mental health care is both a crucial part of re-entry and an underestimated necessity within prisons. The issue is not just of concern for clinicians and correction officers, but social workers, policy and law makers, family members, and communities. With the input of several esteemed panelists, including UC Berkeley Social Work Lecturer and CDCR mental health clinical case manager Beth Kita, Georgetown Law Adjunct Professor and staff attorney for the DC Prisoners Project Deborah Golden, and Program Director for the American Friends Service Committee’s Criminal Justice Program Natalie Holbrook , along with other expert panelists, we’ll cover the breadth of issues regarding mental health and incarceration. Our panel will be held from 1-3 pm in the Pendleton Room of The Michigan Union.
