Why Urban Communities Ignore Mentally Ill Residents

Monday, March 10, 2014

A symposium this week will examine the isolation and stigmatization of mental illness and how cultural norms, institutions and administrative structures fail to adequately address the needs of the mentally ill community. Craig speaks with Dr. Patricia Erickson, Director of Criminal Justice Program and Professor at Canisius, and the co-author of Crime, Punishment and Mental Illness: Law and the Behavioral Sciences in Conflict.
