Right now, mentally ill Vermonters wait an average of 50 days for a court order to allow forced medication. Hospitals say patients are waiting too long for treatment. Some patients say they need the time so their rights aren’t violated.
We’ll talk about possible changes to involuntary medication procedures with Tom Huebner, President of Rutland Regional Medical Center, and Jack McCullough, project director of the Mental Health Law Project of Vermont Legal Aid. We'll also hear from Representative Anne Donahue
Also, eating bugs might not sound appetizing for you, but we'll talk to one Vermonter who's trying to change that mindset.
Broadcast live on Thursday, February 6th at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
