As the number of people experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County rises each year, street medicine practitioners find themselves caring for more people with mental and behavioral health issues.
How did we get here? What historical, social and political forces have contributed to our current reality? Do behavioral health concerns contribute to becoming homeless or arise from the trauma of experiencing homelessness? What is being done to address this catastrophe during the pandemic – and what does the future hold for this humanitarian crisis?
Join us for answers to these timely, critical questions with Jonathan E. Sherin, M.D., Ph.D., LA County Director of Mental Health and Coley King, D.O., Director of Homeless Health Care at Venice Family Clinic. Tanya McRae, Spectrum News 1 anchor, multi-media journalist and host of “In Focus SoCal,” will moderate.
