Today, a letter is circulating across the state written by Alice M. Forrester (CEO, Clifford Beers), Roy Berger (CEO, Child Guidance Center of Mid-Fairfield), and Sarah Eagan (Child Advocate, State of Connecticut).

Citing multiple concerns including the impact of trauma on children, the trio of behavioral health care leaders is urging citizens and lawmakers alike to join in the call to immediately end the "zero tolerance" policy currently being enforced -- a policy that separates family members, often young children from their parents.
