MHIC Presentation Series: Notes and Slideshows

Updated: May 24, 2021

Below are the notes and slideshows of my presentations for the Mental Health in Crisis talk series. The recordings can be found on the Writing landing page at the bottom: unsoundmind.org/blog. The transcript for part one can be found here: https://www.unsoundmind.org/post/mental-health-in-crisis. I will continue to update this page with the slideshows and notes after the presentations, and I will upload the recordings to the audio player linked to above. Included below is also a poster for the the series. The best way to keep up with the series/links is to follow the Facebook page at facebook.com/ofunsound or follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/sashadurakov.
