Robert Correll, veterans ..., 21 Oct 2014 [cached]
Robert Correll, veterans liaison for the National Alliance of Mental Illness which works to lift the stigma attached to mental illnesses, including PTSD, and a veteran himself, was there to see his friend honored.
Some gave a lot, some gave a little, but they all deserve recognition, Correll said.
Correll said ceremonies such as Tuesdays are important not just to honor an individual, but also so the rest of the community sees that veterans are being recognized.
As the ceremony ended, a sweet smile came over Marias face, and she said, Now we need a bigger display case.

Robert Correll, NAMI Connecticut executive director, says, "First, we are very happy that the national [NAMI] organization went and did this very big task for the entire nation. Second, we're pleased, obviously, with getting a B. And third, we still have a heck of a lot of work to do."
Some of that work concerns Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut's largest psychiatric facility, which is being investigated for safety violations by the U.S. Department of Justice. The Judge David Bazelon Center, a nonprofit legal advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C., is looking at whether psychiatric patients are being inappropriately admitted to locked nursing home beds, a "hot button issue" in the current legislative session, Correll says.
Another problem, being fought in every state, Correll says, is the availability of safe and decent affordable housing so folks with limited incomes have somewhere to go after inpatient treatment. The state has made some investments in this area, but "we're nowhere near where we need to be," he says.
"We feel good about what we're doing and how it's being perceived. Correll says, especially the state's recovery model of care, key to Connecticut's receiving a SAMHSA transformation grant worth $13.7 million over five years.

We want to make sure the entire citizen group understands that mental health is essential to overall health and treat it with the urgency that we do physical health, Bob Corell, president of NAMI-Conn., told MHW.
The seven workgroups and the oversight group will work on developing a detailed plan, said Corell, who is a member of the states oversight committee.Were looking ataddressing specific issues pertinent to the community, he said.Those areas include ready-access to outpatient treatment, access to affordable housing, and the use of Medicaid asa funding source to leverage state funds with new revenue to increasing services offered.
Connecticut has underused Medicaid as a funding source, said Corell.We need to change that mindset in the state legislature.The state is not investing the amount of funds needed in order to receive total funding from the federal government, he said.
