Event description

Description

We have made great strides in modern medicine to prevent and treat many physical illnesses, but when it comes to mental health, the gaps, especially for people experiencing homelessness, are quite wide. Over one-third of people experiencing homelessness have a serious mental health illness that is untreated. This panel will address trauma and how it impacts a person throughout his/her/their lifetime, co-occurring conditions, delayed diagnosis, available services, and the barriers to help people with mental health conditions face.

In 2019, let's IGNITE THOUGHT and INCITE CHANGE through thoughtful conversations with leaders in the field of housing, homelessness, and poverty.

Our 2019 Education Series is FREE and open to the public. For special accomodations (we request one week's notice) or questions, please email Meredith Ritchie at mritchie@coloradocoalition.org.

These educational events are part of an eleven-part series of topics impacting people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in our communities, guided by audience interest and questions. Click here to see other Education Series topics in 2019.
