Where Do the Presidential Candidates Stand on Mental Health Issues?

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has released the responses it has received thus far from the presidential candidates to its questionnaire on a variety of mental health issues. The survey includes several questions related to jail diversion programs for non-violent offenders with mental illness.

On the NAMI website, you will find comprehensive responses from Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and former Senator John Edwards. Senator John McCain has provided a statement on mental health issues. Responses from other candidates are pending.
