June 1st 2022 Virtual Session: Info and Input on DRW’s Mental Health Advocacy

Calendar, coffee cup and pen and paper sit on a table; scene is labeled Events.

DRW’s Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illnesses (PAIMI) program provides advocacy assistance to protect the human and civil rights of children and adults with serious mental health conditions. This work is supported by a PAIMI Advisory Council, who advises DRW’s staff and the Board of Directors on policies and issues that affect people with mental illnesses and helps to set priorities for the PAIMI program.

Join us on June 1st!

DRW’s PAIMI Advisory Council invites you to a virtual session to learn about DRW’s PAIMI advocacy assistance and systemic work. Learn more about DRW’s new Do-It-Yourself Guide to Filing a Patient/Client Grievance, share your ideas on the supports you think are most important for people with mental health needs to support their recovery and live successfully in the community, and provide suggestions on priorities for DRW’s mental health advocacy.

The session is open to all via Zoom. We are especially interested in hearing from people who receive mental health services, as well as family members and service providers.
