ONLINE COMMUNITY MEETING Monday, July 25, 2022 7:00 – 8:15 pm | Zoom Webinar
One of the most urgent needs to is to help the most severely mentally ill and/or addicted persons break out of the cycle of homelessness, hospitalization and incarceration. Please join us to hear two experts discuss the proposed CARE Court legislation, which will connect a person in crisis with behavioral health care, medication and housing while holding both government and participants accountable.
Judge Stephen V. Manley, Santa Clara County Superior Court
Sheila Carter, NAMI Westside LA Board of Directors
Judge Manley presides over all misdemeanor and felony drug and mental health cases in Santa Clara County and has for 25 years championed the development of special court programs aimed at getting offenders with mental illness, substance use disorders, or both, into treatment and out of jail. Ms. Carter is an advocate for policy and practices on behalf of those with serious mental illness, an advocacy that is grounded in her own lived experience with an adult son and daughter both diagnosed with mental illness.
Come learn the basis for this proposal and how it can work. Let us know what you want to know more about by submitting your questions when you register or during the webinar.
