WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR PAIMI SERVICES?
PAIMI clients are individuals that have significant “mental illness or emotional impairment” as determined by a mental health professional.
WHAT DOES PAIMI DO?
The PAIMI program provides services to individuals with a diagnosis of serious mental illness. These services include: advice/counsel; support in pursuing administrative remedies; technical assistance; investigation and monitoring; negotiation or mediation; direct legal representation; training; and information or referral. The PAIMI program places a priority on serving persons with serious mental illness who live in facilities that provide care and treatment, but also serves individuals with serious mental illness who live in the community. There is no charge for our services.
The PAIMI program advocates to promote the rights of people with mental illness or emotional impairments with particular emphasis on individuals in facilities, such as state and county psychiatric facilities, nursing homes, jails and prisons, and private treatment facilities. There is no charge for our services.
