    This panel will examine the challenges and pitfalls of providing mental health services in the current moment, as well as provide suggestions for how the law should respond to mental health needs going forward. Specifically, panelists will explore what can be learned from two events currently shaping mental health needs and understandings of how the law should respond: the Covid-19 pandemic and increased visibility of violence against people of color, including those with mental health needs. A diverse group of panelists will consider the emotions and mental health needs triggered by current events, what the impact has been on those providing legal and mental health care services, what examining these impacts from a human rights perspective might reveal, and specific law reform proposals.
