Undoing False and Destructive Myths: The Connection between Mental Illness and Gun Violence at Unitarian Society of New Haven

October 14, 2017 from 9am to 3pm

New Haven programs include residential and supportive housing programs for individuals and families suffering from chronic mental illness and addictions, a City-Wide Outreach & Engagement Project for homeless adults, a large Supportive Housing for Families program, a wide array of community justice programs including the Elm City Women & Children's Center, the Sierra Pre- and post-trial Centers, the REACH (Re-Entry Assisted Community Housing); and Roger Sherman House.
