Join Ashleigh Kysar-Moon for a discussion on diversity, child maltreatment and mental health. Health disparities scholars describe the existence of a mental health paradox; specifically, when black adults have higher levels of stress exposure compared to whites, yet have better mental health outcomes. Whether such a paradox exists among black youth with a history of maltreatment is unclear. Kysar-Moon will also discuss the role psychosocial resources play in post-hoc analyses for better mental health.

Mass incarceration is the imprisonment of millions of persons in prisons and jails in numbers far beyond those necessary to insure public safety. It is a system that gives the United States the highest incarceration rates in the world and that disproportionately targets people of color. Reducing this number requires a multi-faceted approach in which we reform sentencing practices, reduce racial bias in the system, and increase the availability of services and programs that provide alternatives to incarceration and that reduce recidivism. The Iowa Justice Action Network (IJAN) was created in 2015 to advocate for policy changes in Iowa that address these issues. Dr. R. Allen Hays, Emeritus Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at UNI, will chair a panel from IJAN that will include those who provide services for those in prison or recently incarcerated, as well as individuals with direct experience in the system. 

Panelists:
R. Allen Hays, Emeritus Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, UNI
Aaron Hawbaker, Black Hawk County Public Defender’s Office
Sara Carter, Adult Correctional Services, Community Treatment Coordinator 1st Judicial District
Dan Tallman, Mental Health/Substance Abuse Counselor
