Guest: Psychiatric boarding of mentally ill needs to end | Opinion | The Seattle Times

Here is an oped by a mom I respect and admire a lot, Eleanor Owen.

When she speaks, people need to listen for she is one who has worked in the trenches for years and knows the System well: as it was and as it is. She is co-founder of the Greater Seattle, Washington state and National Alliances on Mental Illness. She does not hesitate to speak her mind, a necessary trait in order to effectively advocate for those with severe and persistent mental illness who have no voice. This is a lady who tells it like it is.  Thank you for that, Eleanor.
