Mutual Aid After Harvey: Addressing Community Mental Health
September 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
How has Hurricane Harvey affected our mental health? How do we respond to loss? How has the storm affected our perspectives on what it means to live in Houston? Join us for a presentation by Erica Fletcher, PhD, and a group discussion following. Erica is and social researcher, filmmaker, and the Hope and Healing Institute’s Zorich Fellow on Mental Health Policy. She will discuss landscapes of mental distress and possibilities for community healing within her urban homeland of Houston, Texas. Participants will be encouraged to discuss connections between urban life, mutual aid, and the limits of “resilience” in addressing environmental disasters.
