On February 28, we will be hosting our second Dialogue & Conversation in our series about Mental Healthcare in DC at Busboys and Poets on 5th and K.

Having stable, safe, and affordable living conditions are just as essential for individuals working toward recovery from mental illness as accessibility to services and support.  

While having a mental illness has little to no impact on housing for many people, others face cascading obstacles and challenges, particularly availability and affordability. The waitlist for housing in DC is at an all-time high and some people have been on the list for years. This event will focus on the DC housing for people with mental illness, and begin a Dialogue & Conversation about current programs, improvements, and solutions.

Jayne O’Donnell, Healthcare Policy Reporter, USA TODAY
