PAIMI Advisory Council

Disability Law Colorado is fortunate to have an active Advisory Council for the Protection & Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Program.  The PAIMI Advisory Council’s role is to passionately advocate for those children, adolescents and adults with a mental illness who are most vulnerable to abuse and neglect.

The council works with our board and staff to develop annual priorities and objectives for the PAIMI Program and advise us on policies to protect the rights of individuals with mental illness in Colorado. Members also help to educate the public about our programs. 

The PAIMI Advisory Council is currently seeking new members.  For more information CLICK HERE. If you wish to apply, CLICK HERE FOR THE APPLICATION. En Espanol,  Haga clic aquí para la aplicación.
