Attend "Crime, Mental Illness, and Justice" this Thursday!

Join Bill and Linda Babbitt and Diane Cameron at a special forum, featuring footage from documentarian Mike Camoin's "Life or Death," which explores the question "How should justice systems -- and family members -- respond when individuals suffering from mental illness kill or commit acts of violence?" The forum features compelling personal accounts of how families cope with acts of violence by loved ones who suffer from mental illness, and explores critically important issues about how systems of justice and social institutions should respond.

Where and When

"Crime, Mental Illness, and Justice: From Capital Punishment to Lunacy Commissions," will be held on Thursday, October 6 at 7:00pm at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany at 405 Washington Avenue. The even is free and open to the public thanks to support from University Auxiliary Services, UAlbany Alumni Association, and The Justice & Multiculturalism Project. Learn more at
