Description

Duty to Warn Symposium and March: October 14, 2017

Duty To Warn is an association of mental health professionals who advocate Trump’s removal under the 25th amendment of the U.S. Constitution on the grounds that he is not psychologically fit to serve as president. Mental health professionals across the United States, who believe they have a duty to warn the public about the dangers posed by Donald Trump’s mental health, will speak out.

  • We have a full program of speakers (see below)

  • We will show Duty to Warn: The Movie, a 30-minute documentary, in which John Gartner, Ph.D., interviews 15 mental health professionals about Trump.

  • We will express our support for H.R. 1987, the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, which proposes to create a panel of medical and psychiatric experts who could evaluate a president, should the 25th Amendment be invoked for reasons of mental capacity. The bill was introduced by Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who will be receiving an award at the Washington, DC, Duty to Warn event.

  • We will mail our petition for mental health professionals, with 63,000 signatures, to the Cabinet, which has the power to remove Trump under the 25th Amendment.

  • There will be a question and answer exchange with the audience.
