We often hear that mental illness is a key problem in gun violence. Many mental health professionals say this is untrue and a dangerous message to be send-ing. This meeting will explore why some believe mental illness is behind gun violence and what concerns mental health professionals have about this message. What does each group mean by “mental illness?” If it is an issue, what can be done to help address it? If “mental illness” is not a significant factor, what are the concerns that lead people to these conclusions and how can we address those concerns? The public is invited to join us for this meet-ing.
