Local NAMI member to be featured at the
Pittsburgh Arts and Lecture Series

Thursday, December 6, 2018  | 6:00 pm  |  Carnegie Library, Oakland

 

Linda Tashbook, Esq. is the Vice-President of NAMI FAMILIAS Pittsburgh East, in addition to being a law librarian and lawyer. Linda wrote this book after answering a lot of questions, over the years, about legal issues that affected their adult family members who live with mental illness. The book addresses topics in five categories: health law, criminal law, employment law, consumer law, and death. In the talk, I will present anecdotes and examples that explain legal issues and demonstrate ways that family members can help to assert rights and reduce injustices.
