Heart Forward LA started this petition to International Mental Health Collaborating Network and

Trieste is recognized by the World Health Organization as the model of global best practice in mental health care. It has inspired dozens of programs throughout the world to create an integrated network of community services focused upon the whole-person needs of its users; maintaining their dignity as citizens; and minimizing the coercive practices of old fashioned institutional settings.  As we have seen play out in a tragic way in the in the U.S., neglect makes people sicker.  Trieste has shown us how community inclusion improves people’s lives.

 But this great achievement is now threatened by a new right wing regional government that, on poorly informed and ideological grounds, is fast and impulsively dismantling Trieste's wonderful system of community care. We stand in strong solidarity with clinicians, patients, and families throughout the world eager to protect the model of mental health care that has made Trieste a beacon of hope for the world's most vulnerable citizens. 

As a Friend of Trieste and all that it stands for, please sign this petition and distribute widely.
