we just found out that Governor Paterson vetoed the Housing Wait
List Bill. Though not unexpected, we are still disappointed and
will continue to advocate that there be a more planful process
for development of housing for individuals with psychiatric disabilities.
We will continue to have active discussions with the administration
and legislature on how best to create a true needs assessments.
There has been some real positive movement and greater collaborations
in regard to enhanced housing capacity in recent years but much
more needs to be done for individuals with psychiatric disabilities.
