Question of the month

Each month we ask a different question that relates to what is happening in the children's mental health system in Mississippi. Your responses allow us to communicate to legislators, policy makers and other stakeholders, as well as families across Mississippi, what you are thinking and how we can work together to make things better. You can respond in the comments section below.

This month's question:

The United States Department of Justice sued Mississippi last month for discriminating against adults with mental illness by not providing the services they need to live in the community. There is a longstanding case (2010), Troupe v. Barbour, about the same kinds of issues in the children's system. What do you think about these lawsuits?
