We know you’ve probably already read the latest issue of Washington Psychiatrist and seen our article, but in case you haven’t, it’s on pages 9-12: Assisted Outpatient Treatment for Homeless Individuals with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness: An Interdisciplinary Conversation

Gunther and Dr. Michael Morse, one of our consulting psychiatrists, teamed up with two of our board members, Kathryn Cohen and Reverend John Graham, to each write about the need for assisted outpatient treatment (AOT). Kathryn, who works as an attorney for Treatment Advocacy Center, wrote about the need for AOT from a policy standpoint. Reverend Graham tied his experiences interacting with our guests to the Bible, and Dr. Morse talked about medical ethics and how AOT is an ethical way of helping those with mental illness.

We hope you’ll read all of these great perspectives!
