Join us Tuesday, November 13, 6:00-7:10 pm in Bockman Hall room 116. The Barbara Schneider Foundation seeks to eliminate the criminalization of people with mental illness through proactive training and education. Mark Anderson will share de-escalation techniques to use in times of a mental health crisis.
Anderson has a wealth of mental health policy knowledge at the state and federal levels and is well known in Minnesota’s mental health and health care communities. He served as Senior Advisor and Policy Liaison Senator Wellstone’s Senate. Anderson was Wellstone’s lead health care and mental health staff person in Minnesota. He also staffed Governor Perpich’s board and commission appointments operation in the Governor’s office for two years before joining Wellstone’s staff.
This event is sponsored by the pastoral care class: “Ministry with Persons with Mental Illness and Their Families.” All interested persons welcome.
