HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS’ MONTHLY TRAINING: Media and Messaging: Changing the Images of Mental Illness and Homelessness @ Queen’s Conference Center
Aug 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Hawai‘i’s homelessness crisis has led to many media pieces
that have been instrumental in shaping public perception and opinion of
people experiencing homelessness and what should be done about the crisis.  Mental illness has been interwoven with the topic of homelessness in Hawai‘i.  Coverage has been criticized for being sensationalized, disrespectful of the victims and for violating
privacy. This training will include discussion from different points of
view on how publicity related to homelessness and mental illness
can be helpful or harmful to efforts to reduce homelessness.
Additional speakers will be added to this presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review how media shapes public opinions about mental illness and homelessnessusing local examples.
  2. Examine the linkage of homelessness and mental illness through media.
  3. Discuss consequences of media coverage of homelessness.

Aug 22 – Aug 24 all-day

The Western Region Public Health Training Center (WRPHTC) is hosting its first virtual conference to bring together public health workers, researchers, and educators to discuss and develop the skills needed to tackle disparities in diet-related disease and food access.
