2010 NCMHR Annual Open Meeting Report
NCMHR had two very successful meetings attended by hundreds of people: an open networking dinner on September 30 and our Annual Open Meeting on October 1, both in Anaheim, CA. At our Annual Meeting, we shared of our accomplishments this past year and discussed next steps to transforming mental healthcare in the U.S. We brainstormed about challenges and opportunities and discussed policy priorities for the 2011 ballot. The National Coalition membership will soon vote on the policy priorities for 2011. Stay tuned for those results!
At the Annual Open Meeting, we had the pleasure of giving out the Judi Chamberlin Joy in Advocacy Awards. The awards went to Mike Finkel, Executive Director of On Our Own of Maryland, and to Harvey Rosenthal, Executive Director of the New York Association for Psychiatric Rehabilitation (NYAPRS). We are so thankful to Mike and Harvey for their lifetime of service and commitment to advancing the rights and wellness of consumer/survivors, and for keeping Judi’s dream alive.

Proposed NC Regional Networks
Proposed National Coalition Regional Networks for Organizing Purposes
We propose meeting in the following NC regional networks to balance out the number of National Coalition members per organizing area. For example, federal regions 4 and 6 combined would increase the number of NC member states from 1 in federal region 6 to 6 in the combined region; and combining federal regions 7 and 8 would help region 8 which only has one NC member presently.
NC NORTHEAST REGIONAL NETWORK (A) - (6 NC members)
NC MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL NETWORK (B) - (5 NC members)
NC SOUTHERN REGIONAL NETWORK (C) - (7 NC members)
NC MIDWEST REGIONAL NETWORK (D) - (4 NC members)
NC PLAINS REGIONAL NETWORK (E) - (4 NC members)
NC WEST REGIONAL NETWORK (F) - (6 NC members)
