Shouldn’t they Just All Be in Riverview: Myths, Clichés and Debatable Truths.

Part of Strathcona Mental Health Team Mental health Week
Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Gerry Bradley, manager, Strathcona and West End Mental Health Teams; and Dan Small, Director, Portland Hotel Society; Jack Bibby, Forensic Psychiatric Services; and Howard Tran, Vancouver Police Department. Much of what we know about the Downtown Eastside we learn through newspapers and newscasts. In this presentation, the panelists will try to examine some of the more popular misconceptions and hold them up to the evidence of the data.

9:30 to 11:30. Everyone welcome. All sessions are downstairs at the Strathcona Mental Health team, 330 Heatley ave. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Please come early to get a seat.
