Episode 7 – Legal Advocacy for Adults with Mental Illness
This week, I am so excited to be speaking with Ayana Dobos, who is a staff attorney at Legal Services of Eastern Missouri. Ayana has a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice & Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. She completed her Juris Doctorate at Emory University School of Law and now practices in St. Louis, MO. She is the Program Director & Attorney for the LAAAMI. LAAMI stands for Legal Advocacy for Adults with Mental Illness. We will be discussing how this program helps people living with or at risk of developing mental illness address legal problems through a combination of legal and social work assistance.
