MSPP Community Events
2014 Massachusetts Gubernatorial Forum on Mental Health
MSPP will sponsor a Gubernatorial Forum on mental health. Topics will include issues such as the social impact of casino and marijuana legalization, teen suicide, veteran services, children and family services, guns and violence, and mental health care.
The Forum is a historic event for MSPP in that it will lay the groundwork for our school to be the setting where the thought leaders come together to discuss these topics. Democratic candidates Don Berwick, Martha Coakley, and Steve Grossman and Republican candidate Charlie Baker will participate.
The moderator for the event will be award-winning journalist Tom Ashbrook, who is well known as the host of WBUR's "On Point," a syndicated show carried on 286 stations nationwide. Most of the questions that will be posed to the candidates have come from MSPP students, faculty, and administration. Mr. Ashbrook will ask all the questions.
Attendance at the Forum will be free and open to the public but registration is required.
