The National Coalition
of Mental Health Professionals & Consumers
... is a national organization working to ensure that those who suffer from mental and emotional disorders are treated fairly and humanly and to address how managed care negatively impacts patients and professionals in mental health. Our professional organizations are often too concerned with internal issues or external “boundary” conflicts to really speak to the need for quality mental health treatment. Consumer-oriented advocacy groups in the area of mental health are often narrowly focused…. large grassroots organizations addressing health care needs often do not address the need for mental health care and, when they do, often do not recognize the unique need for choice and privacy. Only the National Coalition has been a unifying voice for real benefits, choice and access for mental health care.
This announcement was adapted from materials sent by William MacGillivray, Ph.D., a member of the boards of both the National Coalition and Division 39.
