You might not have noticed the update to the calendar for our May 10th meeting - the topic for the evening will center on our prejudices of mental illness. For this meeting, we will be joined by James Jones, Law professor at U of L's Brandeis School of Law. Professor Jones will be delivering his presentation, "Severe Mental Illness, Stigma, and the Value of Treatment".
Professor Jones has presented this material to many audiences, including the Louisville Metro Police Department; U of L's Kent School of Social Work; U of L's School of Nursing; U of L's Department of Psychiatry; Bellarmine University, the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools, and the Annual Meeting of the Indiana Conference of Rehabilitative Psychiatric Services. You can learn more about Professor Jones at http://www.law.louisville.edu/faculty/james_jones
We're meeting UPSTAIRS at Mulligan's Pub & Grille for this meeting - I believe that the environment will be more conducive for the discussion. Feel free to show up a early if you'd like to get some dinner, the last time a group met there, servic e was a bit slow. However, I don't think it will be a problem to eat while Professor Jones is talking.

It should be very worthwhile - I hope you can make it.
