NO General Meeting Tuesday, August 18:
After passage in July, Laura's Law, now called AOT (Assisted Outpatient Treatment) a city-wide implementation committee was formed with input from NAMI SF, the DA's office, the Public Defender's office, and multiple other key agencies like the BHC, Housing Authority, SF Health Dep, etc. The work product of that effort was an Implementation Plan that has been approved by the City Attorney's Office. This plan goes to the Mental Health Board for review this month.
NAMI San Francisco is one of more than 1,100 affiliates of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, known by its acronym NAMI.
With some 200,000 members, NAMI is the nation's largest grassroots, volunteer organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with severe mental illnesses through advocacy and education efforts. We understand that mental illness deeply affects whole families; not just the person with an illness.
