About the DRW PAIMI Advisory Council

Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW) is the Protection and Advocacy organization for
Wisconsinites with disabilities. Our PAIMI program (Protection and Advocacy for Individuals
with Mental Illness) works to protect the human and civil rights of children and adults with
serious mental health conditions. This work is supported by a PAIMI Advisory Council.

The Council helps staff and board of directors of DRW set priorities for the PAIMI program
and advises the board on policies and issues that affect people with mental illness. The
Council also serves as a liaison to the communities its members represent.
