PAST EVENT Friday October 27 2017

On October 27, the Manhattan Institute held a mental-health symposium featuring discussions with Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use, and authors D.J. Jaffe and Pete Earley.

 

Ten million Americans live with serious mental illness; such people live ten years less, on average; and they are ten times more likely to be in prison than receiving care in a psychiatric hospital. The costs of this tragic neglect are high—for the one-third of mentally ill Americans who receive no treatment, for their families, and for strangers who fall victim to psychotic violence.

The Manhattan Institute hosted a mental-health symposium, featuring authors D.J. Jaffe and Pete Earley, who were inspired to write books on the shortcomings of the current system after attempting to help mentally ill family members; and Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, a long-time critic of the status quo who was recently sworn in as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' first Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use.
