Every year since 1990, the National Alliance on Mental Illness has observed the second week in October as Mental Illness Awareness Week.

The Daily Astorian couldn't have published a more timely article that week than "No place to go for the mentally ill" (Oct. 8).

As a member of the NAMI - Oregon Public Policy committee, thank you.
