CBHL Member Roundtable: Deconstructing Non-Compliance and Exploring a Counterargument to Forced Treatment
February 23 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am MST
From New York to California, policies are being implemented which lead to the increased use of forced treatment orders, reverting to policies of years past. Attempts to address community challenges around homelessness, poverty, and crime are often conflated with mental health challenges and regarded as public safety versus public health issues. This leads to strategies resulting in involuntary hospitalizations and incarcerations. There are numerous research findings demonstrating the damaging, discriminating, and inequitable effects of forced treatment, so why are policymakers reverting to these policies? Join the dialogue on February 23 at 9am PT / 10am MT / 11am CT / 12pm ET to de-construct non-compliance and explore a counterargument to forced treatment.
