Mental health group plans fundraising campaign

Greg Fitch, May 2016

The Mental Health Consumer Action Network, a new nonprofit devoted to lobbying on behalf of the mentally ill, will begin a door-to-door drive Friday.

Executive director Gregory Evan Fitch said he plans to “try to knock on every door in Juneau” in order to gain 2,000 members who support the organization. Dues are $24 a year or $2 per month. Donations also will be accepted.

The campaign comes as the Alaska Mental Health Trust undergoes significant changes. The Trust’s executive director for the past 21 years abruptly resigned Wednesday following conflicts with the Trust’s board of directors.
