More heat on Guv to do the right thing with adult care homes

In case you missed it, a wide array of North Carolina advocates signed on to a letter yesterday from the Washington, DC-based Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law [1]. The letter urges Governor Perdue to address the state’s ongoing violation of federal law in its treatment of thousands of people with mental illness by warehousing them in so-called “adult care homes” by working with advocates rather than fighting them.

You can read the letter by clicking here [2].

Let’s┬áhope the Guv gets the message.
