When Dr. Torrey speaks, people listen

Dr. Torrey made a major presentation to a crowd of about 700 people at the NAMI Convention in San Diego last month. His talk, entitled The Causes And Consequences Of Our Failure To Treat Individuals With Severe Psychiatric Disorders was received enthusiastically. Advocates were motivated to return to their home states and advocate early and sustained treatment for the most severely ill in their families and communities. One advocate wrote:
I attended the NAMI National Conference in San Diego and was fortunate to hear Dr. Fuller Torrey speak. I agreed with everything he had to say. What a wonderful dedicated soul. We need more like him and you!!!
