Activists upset over cuts to mental health clinics interrupted Mayor Rahm Emanuel at an event Sunday.

The mayor was actually leaving the event at the time.

Emanuel's security detail and police kept the protesters at a distance.

Since announcing cuts and closures of mental health clinics, there have been numerous demonstrations by people who rely on the clinics for care.
