The DRW PAIMI Advisory Council is seeking new members who want to advance positive change in 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 help inform and involve the community in DRW’s mental health advocacy work. The Council is chaired by Tim Saubers of Madison, Wisconsin
There are openings on the Council for people with lived experience who receive mental health services, family members, a mental health professional, and a provider of mental health services.
We are especially interested in candidates who reflect Wisconsin’s racial and ethnic diversity, and candidates from Fox Valley, Racine/Kenosha, Milwaukee, and northern Wisconsin, or other areas not currently represented.
Interested candidates should complete and submit their application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications received by January 6th will be given priority.
