"No one is homeless because they made a bad decision in life. There are systemic reasons in our community. " – Chris Knestrick

Online registration has closed. If you would like to join us in person for this forum, we welcome you to be a part of our walk-in guest list. Doors open at 11:15 a.m. Alternatively, the livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. at www.cityclub.org. For questions, please contact Amber Smith at asmith@cityclub.org, or at (216) 621-0082.

Behavioral health and homelessness profoundly influence each other, often in reinforcing ways. The unhoused are already among the most medically vulnerable populations, at higher risk for high blood pressure, asthma, infectious diseases, and other chronic conditions. The experience of being homeless also increases the likelihood of depression and anxiety, and can exacerbate existing health and behavioral health issues. Without safe, reliable housing, access to treatment becomes an even more difficult challenge.

As part of The City Club’s series on behavioral health, our panel of dedicated experts will discuss the opportunities and gaps that exist in the continuum of behavioral health care amongst our region's unhoused.

The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
