Stopping the Revolving Door in Idaho – personally speaking


(Nov. 2, 2012) Latah County is already using the copies of “Stopping the Revolving Door” I brought back from the NAMI national convention in Seattle.

IdahoHere’s what happened.

We showed the video at a summer NAMI meeting, attended by the county’s prosecuting attorney, Bill Thompson. Afterward, he said it was “one of the best training films” he’d ever seen and wanted a copy.

Then a county commissioner wanted to know if he could get extra copies, and it was shared with the district court judge, too. Now officials are reviewing it for use in their "training" on how to set up a mental health court. Sounds like your “Guide for Implementing Assisted Outpatient Treatment” is just what they need.

Can't thank you enough for the extra copies of the video you are sending! At the risk of sounding greedy, could you send five more copies of the AOT implementation guide, too?
