This meeting is with Dr. Maria Illardi, a private psychiatrist in Lawrence and former employee at Bert Nash. Justice Matters is reaching out to Directors/CEOs of commercial psychiatric/psychological service providers and pharmacists in Lawrence with three purposes:
- Introduce the organization/build a relationship of mutual respect
- Seek allies in the call for a Crisis Stabilization Center and a comprehensive mental health plan in Lawrence
- Request financial investment in our work on mental health
A trained spokesperson will lead the meeting, but Justice Matters members are encouraged to come to show broad public support on these matters. We will host a pre-meeting at 4 pm to finalize our approach at Immanuel Lutheran and then Dr. Illardi will meet with us in the library at 4:30 pm.
