The Point Pleasant Register – Marshall University will host the first forum in a series of statewide Mental Health Matters panel presentations to advocate for juvenile justice and a system of community-based mental health care for youth. Read
The forum will be 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, in the Memorial Student Center’s room BE5 on the Huntington campus.
Kim White, a member of the Mental Health Matters grassroots campaign and an assistant professor in the university’s Department of Social Work, said the forum will provide opportunities for the community to examine the high cost of youth incarceration and segregation and the possibilities extended to our state to change mindsets and gear policies toward prevention and early intervention services in the community and within school systems.
