In a Capitol Weekly opinion piece, DJ Jaffe -- founder and executive director of Mental Illness Policy Org. -- argues that the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission "is diverting" funding from the Mental Health Services Act Â to "committees, consultants, PR firms, publishers, art directors" and other uses "instead of programs for people with severe mental illness." Jaffe offers several suggestions to address the issue.
