To recover, our loved ones with a severe mental illness must have good access to an effective mental health care system, one that is comprehensive, seamless and assertive. For this to occur, those who are affected by mental illness--primarily individuals with mental illness, family members, providers, and other stakeholders--must be strong advocates, aggressivley informing legislators and other decison makers that, with proper psychiatric care, people with mental illnesses can recover to live self-fulfilling and productive lives.
