Justice Talking: Rights of the Mentally Ill

Justice Talking: Rights of the Mentally Ill

The public radio show "Justice Talking" has released a new program focused on the law and mental illness, with a particular emphasis on issues related to civil commitments. It features interviews with journalist Pete Earley, the author of Crazy: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness, attorney John Stanley, with the Treatment Advocacy Center, and civil rights attorney Michael Allen, the former director of the fair housing program at the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law.

The program also features the stories of individuals - and their families - living with mental illness.

A transcript will soon be available.
