NAMI is going to San Antonio for its 2013 National Convention, and so are we! Please come visit our booth and attend our panel discussion.
At Booth 305 every day, Treatment Advocacy Center staff and board members will be on hand to introduce themselves and provide up-to-date information on critical developments in mental illness treatment laws and policies.
In the Texas E room at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, please join us for a panel discussion, “The Medical Model Matters.”
Executive Director Doris A. Fuller will introduce panelists:
- Brian Stettin, Treatment Advocacy Center policy director. As a policy aide to former New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Brian drafted the original proposal of Kendra’s Law, the landmark 1999 legislation establishing assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) in New York.
- Dr. Jeffrey Geller, Worcester Recovery Center and Hospital medical director and professor of psychiatry at University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Geller has more than 35 years of experience working with people who have severe mental illness in community and inpatient settings. He has fought for the right for meaningful care for those who do not recognize their illness both as a clinician and as an academic.
As at past workshops, a drawing for a signed copy of a book by Dr. E. Fuller Torrey will be held at the end of the workshop. Come by our booth to sign up!
