Mental Illness Policy Org and DJ Jaffe have been filling lots of important stories.

Conservative: DJ Jaffe of Mental Illness Policy Org wrote in the conservative National Review how a mental illness related subway pushing in 1999 in New York led states everywhere to adopt or improve assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) laws.

Liberal: The liberal New York Magazine highlighted our efforts to help the seriously mentally ill access assisted outpatient treatment. The Marshall Project carried the same story with even more info on our work. The liberal New York Times included our point of view in an article on Kendra’s Law

Apolitical:  DJ Jaffe responds to critics of Mental Illness Policy Org in a Pete Earley blog that is widely read in Washington.
