CSAP, with SYASL’s help, has worked hard to position the organization as a “go to” in California on issues affecting psychiatrists, patients, and practices. This work continues to pay off. This week, the Washington Post ran a story “California shifts to an experiment in coercion to treat the homeless – A new court system seeks to find a middle road between jail and ignoring the mentally ill, many of whom live on the streets”. In it, former CSAP Government Affairs Committee Chairman and SDPS member Steve Koh is quoted. Thank you Steve and to other CSAP members who also made themselves available to reporter Scott Wilson.
