New Research Site: Mental Illness Policy.org

Mental Illness Policy.org is a one-man “think-tank” founded in 2011 to provide information to the media and policy-makers about care and treatment of people with serious and persistent mental illness. Different from those with mental “health” issues, this 5-8% segment of the  population is uniquely associated by difficult issues like violence and involuntary treatment, issues many organizations prefer to avoid. Its founder is Mr. D.J. Jaffe, co-founder with Dr. E. Fuller Torrey of the Treatment Advocacy Center, former NAMI New York activist, blogger, and brother-in-law of an individual with schizophrenia. Family members will find Jaffe’s site abundant with helpful articles mostly from a strongly pro-psychiatry point of view.
