As early as October of 2014, General Motors announced that it would no longer use water from the Flint River because it had a corrosive effect on it auto parts. However, at the same time, thousands of Flint, Michigan residents were allowed to continue to use tap water from the Flint River in their daily lives for drinking, cooking, bathing, and other daily activities. And they were told the water was safe.
What emerged was a perfect storm of errors made by Michigan public works experts as well as state officials who wanted to cut budgets. The end result was a clear case of environmental injustice which triggered health disparities. The tragedy about this public health crisis is that it was very preventable.
This workshop will walk community members, mental health providers, policy advocates, and community organizers through the timeline of Flint’s water crisis. Additionally, we will discuss short and long-term impacts on the community and delve into future physical and mental health risks for both children and adults. 

This workshop was a collaboration between The National Association of Social Workers – Michigan Chapter & StoneCrest Center.
