Subjects I'm likely to be covering:

the impact of homeless-aphobia on MHCAN (there have been reports that some neighbors are trying to restrict or shut MHCAN as they've been trying to do to Coral St., the Circles Church, the Recycling Centers, Needle Exchange, and--through restrictive legislation--access to the parks, downtown, the medians, etc.

the success of mixing NAMI-susceptible and medication-hostile folks

the demands made of government agencies on MHCAN and how that's impacted you.

connections between MHCAN and peer-groups in other cities

monitoring abuses at Dominican Hospital

the actual rights of psychiatric inmates re: Reiss and habeas corpus as they have operated in Santa Cruz specifically

the prospects for Solaria-type therapy and the availability of getting off of or cutting down on psychiatric medications here

the shadow of Laura's Law in Santa Cruz and the chances of San Francisco-style Laura's Law legislation

Call in with your own experiences and questions!
