Could Mindy and Sue describe one bill you have recently introduced at the legislature on mental health that relates to our school students?
Sue Abderholden

School linked mental health, suicide training for teachers, trauma informed schools, not suspending students k-3, requiring suicide lines on student IDs

So many just went onto the street after Reagan closed hospitals. I worked in probate court at that time. People would come to our window and ask to see their files.

The legislative Mental Health Caucus was very important to understanding and influencing mental health legislation.
Sue Abderholden
01:02:38
he closed CA hospitals.Reagan didn't close the hospitals, Kennedy and Johnson did but he took all the money from community mental health and made it a block grant.

what’s a traditional healer?
kay Kessel

In the Mpls Public Schools we have school clinics and relationships with organizations like Victims of torture. Our immigrants have experienced such extreme situations and our schools are the safety net. There are needs for more mental health and chemical health support in the schools.Thank you Mindy and Sue for being advocates for funding.

What can smaller cities do to address mental illness in their populations?
Mary Carlsen
01:20:44
Thank you for explaining BIPOC - many are unfamiliar with this acronym
Sue Abderholden
01:21:54
Smaller cities can welcome providers into your community, provide public awareness and suicide prevention trainings, have city staff have training on mental illnesses.
Melissa Musliner
01:29:43
Is Hennepin County undertaking similar efforts?
Leslie Waterhouse
01:29:58
I was very surprised to learn that Minnesota out of 69 treatment courts in Minnesota, only 4 were mental health courts. What can citizens do to advocate for the creation or more mental health courts so individuals with mental health issues have better outcomes in the legal system?
Sue Abderholden
01:30:26
Well that's hard because the courts don't like us coming with bills
Sue Abderholden
01:31:00
Hennepin has not talked about the voluntary engagement piece, we have some smaller rural counties interested
Cheryl Bailey
01:35:34
Are the data similar for women is prisons and jails? My impression is that mental illness has some differences between men and women, and clearly we (women) have different physical needs while hospitalized or imprisoned (in women of child bearing age)
Mary Sawatzky
01:36:59
on page 113 - last paragraph the nurse said " you have an amazing son" referring to being able to have insight into his illness..... that really struck me....
Gail Berger
01:37:37
look up the documentary “the definition of Insanity” about a program in Florida that is focused on the legal system and preventing criminalization of those with Mental Illness. it was sponsored by Norm Orenstein who is from MN.
Susan Vento
01:38:49
Any insights regarding mental health issues for senior citizens? Resources, stats, etc?
