With the recent rise in mass shootings and debates over gun laws, many of us have been thinking differently about mental health and the criminal justice system. This webinar will explore the complex and longstanding relationship between mental health and the criminal justice system, describe justice issues relating to this relationship, and set the ground work for the church to think differently about our response to, and relationship with, the prison population.
This webinar is the first in a mini-series of joint webinars offered by the NBA Prison & Jail Ministriesand NBA Mental Health & Congregational Care Affinity Groups.
Webinar Presenters:
  • Angela Whitenhill, M.Div., LCSW: Psychotherapist, Chaplain, and Convener of the NBA Mental Health Affinity Group
  • Rev. Dean Bucalos: Pastor of New Life in Christ Christian Church, Program Coordinator of Mission Behind Bars and Beyond, and Mission Specialist for the NBA Prison & Jail Ministries Affinity Group
