Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI), hosted by MaryLovesJustice Neal
Advocacy to end police violence against the mentally ill, end solitary confinement, decriminalize mental illness, remove barriers to timely psychiatric treatment, increase mental hospitals, reinstate insurance coverage for psychiatric hospital inpatients, relax laws blocking involuntary commitment, establish assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) programs that mandate continued psychiatric treatment and provide subsistence assistance (food and housing) for mentally ill people, especially those released from correctional facilities and hospitals. Eliminate incarceration without trials, support crisis intervention team (CIT) training for police and corrections officers. End capital punishment against all people, especially those with brain dysfunctions caused by retardation, drug addiction, and/or mental illness.
We support H.R.3717 "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act", a congressional bill introduced by Rep. Tim Murphy in December 2013.
Guests include people who did or still do wrestle with mental illness in themselves or close relatives as well as people with specialized knowledge about inmates and defendants with mental illness.
