We are immersed in our mental illness and the death penalty project these days, identifying, researching, trying to find, and reaching out to families of victims killed by people with severe mental illness and families of people with severe mental illness who have been executed. We are slowly but steadily developing a group who will gather in San Antonio on October 3rd. They and others around the country will be interviewed for the report that we will release with the National Alliance on Mental Illness next year.
Meanwhile, we're also working on the fall issue of our newsletter, which will feature (among other things) some good challenges to the idea of closure. Here on the blog, we'll soon be posting news and reports from places as geographically diverse as Maryland and Tokyo, so check back often.
