Fresh Air

MPower’s most significant recent legislative victory was the passage of the Fresh Air Act in January 2015. After years of legislative advocacy by MPower and our allies, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed into law a fundamental right to “daily access to the outdoors” for those of us confined to psychiatric institutions.
A pamphlet prepaed by the Mental Health Legal Advisors Committee in March 2015 describes the Six Fundamental Rights–including Fresh Air–guaranteed to us when we are confined in psychiatric institutions under Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 123, Section 23. Call them at 617-338-2345 if your rights have been violated.
