Mental Health Policy and Practice Issues in the Wake of Sandy Hook:

An Invitation to the Conversation

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 - 4-5:30pm

University Club, David S. Mack Hall, North Campus

The deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut has generated shock, grief and passionate discussion, all leading ultimately to the question: how do we prevent such horrific tragedies from reoccurring in our society? With the shooting deaths of innocent children and educators in a school community, basic assumptions have been shattered, and people are trying to understand how such things can happen. In particular, schools are being challenged to focus on ways to better prevent and address such crises. As a country, we need to do a much better job in the identification and early intervention of those with mental illness conditions; we need to provide families appropriate intervention supports in the community; we need to help schools, colleges and communities better address the mental health needs of their members; and, we need to take this challenge on as relevant to all of us! As an educator, you are invited to this panel discussion led by experienced practitioners aimed at exploring these issues and how we can move toward positive changes. Come join us in this important conversation!
