NAMI Ask the Expert: History of 911 and Lessons Learned for 988

MAY. 11, 2022

May 26, 2022, 4 – 5:30 p.m. ET

NAMI Ask the Expert Webinar welcomes Dr. S. Rebecca Neusteter, Executive Director of the UChicago Health Lab and Principal Investigator of Transform911. Dr. Neusteter’s work focuses on reducing justice system contact, disparities and collateral consequences while enhancing public safety, civic participation and opportunities to support health and vitality.

In this webinar, Dr. Neusteter will discuss the implementation of 911, 311 and other alternative crisis lines while giving evidence for caution when proceeding with lines like 988. While these challenges are resolvable, they require forward-thinking planning and funding to avoid repeating past mistakes.

After the presentation, NAMI’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth will moderate a Q&A session. This session will be recorded and posted to our website in the days following the webinar. All registrants for this webinar will automatically receive a link by email to view the recorded session once it is available.
