Oct 16, 2020 Season 1 Episode 1

Lauren Rettagliata and Teresa Pasquini, AKA as “ Moms on a Mission,” took a CA road trip in 2019 to search for housing solutions for people with serious mental illness.  “Housing First” is not a viable option; their loved ones require a full system of care that provides care before, during, and after homelessness, crisis, hospitalization, or incarceration. Housing That Heals is a prevention and intervention plan that will systemically flatten the harm curve for those who live with serious mental illnesses.

 Part One of this two-part interview introduces us to Lauren and Teresa and their families and the struggle to advocate for care for their now adult sons.  Also to be discussed:   how CA arrived at this place and insights into public policy, financing, law and the inadequate housing continuum that exists for people with severe mental illness
