Judi’s Room–PAIMI Advisory Councils: Sleeping 800-Pound Gorillas?


June 5, 2024

Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time

The federal Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Act was enacted in the United States to ensure, among other things, that “the rights of individuals with mental illness are protected.” In order to accomplish this, the Protection and Advocacy (P&A) agencies in each US state have been granted special access rights to facilities, records, and people, and have been empowered to bring litigation to protect people’s rights.

Each P&A has a PAIMI advisory council which is supposed to be independent, with at least 60 percent of its members composed of individuals who have received or are receiving mental health care services or who are family members of such individuals, and chaired by such an individual.

The PAIMI advisory councils are to jointly develop the annual PAIMI Act policies and priorities with their P&As. However, the councils have largely been stymied in exercising their power to jointly set their P&A’s policies and priorities under the PAIMI Act.

In this upcoming Judi’s Room event, Kristina Kapp (“KK”) and Jim Gottstein will discuss the potential of the PAIMI Act and its Advisory Councils to ensure people’s rights are protected, and possible means to achieve that potential.
