We are pleased to invite you to register for NAMI’s Ask the Expert Series: Help Not Handcuffs, a special four-part webinar series focused on addressing mental health crises with comprehensive community responses.

With perspectives and insights from clinicians, peers, law enforcement professionals and more, this series will address the history of the intersection of mental health and the justice system, past and present legislative efforts, several existing jail diversion models, and what to expect and strive for with future programs.

The first webinar of the series, The Definition of Insanity Documentary & Panel Discussion, will take place Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021, at 4 PM EST. It will feature a viewing of The Definition of Insanity, a 2020 PBS documentary about the Miami-Dade (Fla.) Criminal Mental Health Project, a team of dedicated public servants working through the courts to redirect people living with mental illness fro incarceration to recovery.

A guided panel discussion and Q&A moderated by NAMI’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth will follow the screening.
