To the Campus Community:
Campus Mental Health Services, in conjunction with the Office of the President, will
host a lecture and discussion by Carolyn Reinach Wolf, Esq. on "Mental Health Legal
Issues for the Higher Ed Campus: Clarifying Fact from Fiction."
The talk will take place on Thursday September 15, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. in the Campus
Ms. Wolf's talk is open to the campus and may be of particular interest to the faculty,
Student Affairs, Health Services staff as well as advisement and opportunity program
professionals. This is a remarkable opportunity to learn more about topics that are
of increasing importance in higher education. We expect Ms. Wolf to address liability
issues within scope of practice and the nuts and bolts of mental health legal options
for students at risk.
Carolyn Reinach Wolf is an Executive Partner at Abrams Fensterman, LLP and Director
of the firm's unique Mental Health Law Practice. She is the only attorney in the country
with a family-focused mental health care practice supported by a team of expert clinicians
specializing in the legal issues that impact loved ones with serious mental illness

hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and outpatient programs.
In 2013, The New York Times Sunday edition featured a story on Ms. Wolf titled "A
Guide in the Darkness." She is a frequently invited speaker and consultant to healthcare
organizations, as well as institutions of higher education and professional associations
regarding mental health law and related topics.
I hope you can join us for an interesting and important event.
