Crime, Violence and Mental Illness Conference June 8

Join AACC Friday, June 8, for a day focused on addressing mental illness in a culture of violence at the fourth annual Crime, Violence and Mental Illness Conference. This year’s event will highlight best practices in investigating, managing and treating offenders who may suffer from mental illness. Speakers and participants will explore, identify and bridge the gap between the areas where criminal justice and mental health systems meet.

Hear from and interact with experts in both fields about critical case studies involving mental illness as mitigating circumstance to some acts of violence in our communities. Speakers include:

  • Adam Rosenberg, Director, Baltimore Child Abuse Center
  • Jayne Miller, WBAL-TV investigative reporter
  • Stephen Janis, author
  • Fred Delp, Executive Director, Anne Arundel chapter of the National Alliance of Mental Illness
  • Maj. Richard Herring, Maryland Reception and Diagnostic Center
  • Capt. Robert Plummer, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department

These professionals will touch on a number of different topics, including:

  • The Consequences of Neglecting Adverse Childhood Experiences
  • Why Do We Kill: The Pathology of Murder in Baltimore and Other Cities
  • 1 October: The Las Vegas Shooting Dissected

The conference will present a timely message from professionals in the criminal justice and mental health fields in order to offer a better understanding and recognition of how to make a difference in the fight against mental illness.

The Crime, Violence and Mental Illness conference takes place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Cade Center for Fine Arts Room 219, followed by a 5 p.m. networking reception at Mother’s Peninsula Grille in Arnold. The $95 cost includes lunch and the reception.
