"We never could have achieved this positive outcome without the joint effort of patients, advocates, and professionals," Fassler commented to Psychiatric News. "That’s the real story here. And this coalition is already moving on to talk about quality issues with respect to the clinical program itself. That’s one of the major accomplishments: we now have patients, family members, physicians, and administrators all talking to each other, proactively, about clinical issues. Hopefully, this will be the lasting legacy of this initiative."
