April 6, 2010; PRNewswire | Michael Fitzpatrick of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is asking local news editors to pay more attention to their coverage of the crisis in mental health services resulting from state cutbacks. You will see when you read this that NAMI took an interesting approach in providing links to all the stories they have collected over the past 3 months to provide some models and guidance to local editors in conceiving and crafting their own stories. To us this looks like a simple but elegant approach that will make the task of writing local pieces easier for ever-extended local news outlets.—Ruth McCambridge
