LSHV Outreach for Mental Illness

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

Invitation to Providers of Mental Health Services From Legal Services of the Hudson Valley 
NEEDS ASSESSMENT MEETING 
Wednesday July 11, 2018, 10:30am-12:30pm Field Library, 4 Nelson Ave, Peekskill, NY 

Please join us for a meeting to discuss how Legal Services of the Hudson Valley (LSHV) can better serve the legal needs of people living with mental illness. 
To better focus our efforts and to make sure we are doing our best to protect this population's legal rights, economic well-being, and ability to live independently in the community, LSHV would like to begin a more in-depth conversation with consumers and agencies that work with our clients. We want your input to help us design a legal assistance program that is responsive to the needs of people
living with mental illness that considers the challenges and obstacles most frequently faced by these individuals.
We would like:
* your feedback on the quality and responsiveness of the legal aid we already provide;
* your input on the types of unmet legal needs most frequently encountered by consumers
* your help in identifying systemic legal problems hurting the communities you serve.
We would be honored if you could attend and share your experiences.
RSVP to jmays@lshv.org, but walk-ins welcome!
