A message from E. Fuller Torrey, MD
This past year, with the support of those like you, the Treatment Advocacy Center provided direction, answers, and hope to desperate families, compassionate legislators, and frustrated providers, all of whom want to improve treatment policies and laws.
We made great progress. And received a big honor: A 2006 Presidential Commendation from the American Psychiatric Association for “extraordinary advocacy on behalf of the most vulnerable mentally ill patients who lack the insight to seek and continue effective care and benefit from assisted outpatient treatment.”
We have been extremely successful, but there is much work yet to do.
We need your support. Our opposition has deep pockets, and many of them receive federal dollars. We refuse to accept funding from pharmaceutical companies, which means more than ever that our successes depend on supporters like you.
Please take a moment right now to donate online to TAC.
Until we find the causes and definitive treatments for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, we have an obligation to those who are suffering to try to improve their lives.
TAC is the only organization willing to take on this fight, and I am very proud to be part of it.
E. Fuller Torrey, MD, president of the board of directors
