Please join us on Monday evening March 18 for a community forum entitled, “Solving It Together: Mental Health and Crisis Care.”
Sponsored by the Charlotte Observer and PNC Bank, this forum will feature a panel of experts, political leaders and law enforcement officials who will discuss the quality of emergency care for thousands of our neighbors who need it most.
Panelists will include: MeckLINK Director Phil Endress, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe, Mecklenburg County Commission Chairwoman Pat Cotham and Mebane Rash with the N.C. Center for Public Policy Research.
Members from MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare, The National Alliance on Mental Health-Charlotte and The Mental Health Association of Central Carolina will be present. Observer Editorial Page Editor Taylor Batten will moderate.
The free forum begins at 7 p.m. at UNC Charlotte’s Center City Building, 320 E. Ninth Street
(at Brevard). Parking is free in the lot at 707 N. Brevard St., about a block away from the Center City Building. See map here.
Doors will open at 6:00, and a dessert and coffee reception will follow the forum.
Pre-registration is encouraged because space will be limited. Audience questions will be taken prior to the forum, using the registration form below.
