Dr. Sheila Waters has agreed to present a Platform on June 10 on “The Effects of Inadequate Mental Health Care for Black and Minority Communities”
Black and underserved communities have been negatively impacted by substandard mental health care. This, in turn, has contributed to over-incarceration of men and women who could have been contributing members of society instead of recipients of very expensive custodial maintenance, funded by tax revenues.
Sheila is a Certified Psychosocial Rehabilitation Practitioner and a member of WES. [She is a second generation Ethical Culture member and was a member of the Philadelphia Society’s youth group.]
