The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights: Progress and Directions
James Gottstein, J.D., The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights.
The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights was formed in 2002 to develop and implement a legal campaign against forced drugging and to otherwise enforce the legal rights of people diagnosed with serious mental illness. The presenter issued a Call to Action for such a legal campaign against unwarranted court-ordered medication and has pursued this goal through various means. This workshop will provide an update on progress to date, prospects for the future and opportunities to network to provide effective legal challenges to forced medication.
