The League of Women Voters will be holding their first meeting after a summer break since their inaugural meeting in Ocean Beach in May.
September 12, from 10:30am-12pm
They will be discussing Mental Heatlh.
Massacres by mentally unstable shooters have focused attention on the inadequacies of the U.S. mental health care system in which less than half of the seriously ill can get treatment. How good is San Diego County’s Mental Health System and what needs to be done to improve it? The LWVSD will be looking at this question and the League’s County Mental Health position created in 1997 in order to have a serious and informative discussion on what the County is doing or not doing. What is Laura’s Law and the connections between mental illness, alcohol and drug use and violence. Be sure to attend our September Unit meeting on this timely and important topic.
Meetings are open to the public, men and women. The League is a non-partisan group, so bring your friends as well.
