About the PAIMI Advisory Council

The DRW PAIMI Advisory Council (PAC) is seeking new members who want to advance positive change for the rights of Wisconsinites with mental health diagnoses.

DRW’s PAIMI program protects the human and civil rights of children and adults with serious mental health conditions. PAIMI stands for Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness. DRW’s PAIMI advocacy is supported by a PAIMI Advisory Council (PAC).

DRW’s PAC members come from around the state. They educate our board and staff about issues facing people with mental health disabilities in Wisconsin. They also inform and involve the community in DRW’s mental health advocacy work. The Council is chaired by Tiffany Stark of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
