Sign IAHR’s Petition to End Direct Release and Solitary Confinement of the Seriously Mentally Ill

We need your help!  IAHR’s legislation is now working its way through the Maryland Legislature.  HB740/SB999 ends direct release from solitary confinement to the community. Instead the bill mandates the Department of Correctional Services to provide transitional services 6 months prior to release.
HB742/SB1002 bans solitary confinement for people diagnosed with serious mental illness.
We need your help!  Please sign the petition supporting our legislation.  We will then present the petition to the House of Delegates’ Judiciary Committee and the Senate’s Judicial Proceedings Committee. We need your support to make sure the legislation gets out of committee and voted on by both houses of the Maryland Legislature.
