Structural Solutions for a Structural Problem: Drawing on Innovations and Best Practices on Homelessness
Wednesday, February 8, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Dr. Enrico Castillo is an academic community psychiatrist and health services researcher at the UCLA Center for Social Medicine and the associate vice chair for justice, equity, diversity and inclusion at the UCLA Department of Psychiatry. In this lecture, he will frame homelessness as a structural problem caused by inequitable laws, institutions and socioeconomic forces. He will highlight the limitations of mental health services to address homelessness and the pitfalls of failing to recognize these limits. And, he will spotlight domestic and international best practices that address the upstream causes of homelessness.
This event is part of the UC Center Sacramento Wednesday Speaker Series: Finding Policy Solutions at the Nexus of Homelessness, Mental Illness, and Incarceration.
