National magazine is seeking personal stories in which children and adolescents are being (or have been)"warehoused" in juvenile justice facilities solely to await placement for treatment. They also are interested in talking with parents or young people who have become advocates for children generally because of such experiences.

If you know of a person who fits these specific profiles, please send names, phone number and email address, city or town, and relevant background details, including ages, to story@nami.org. Please mark the subject line as Kids Warehousing. For more information about the issue, see NAMI’s testimony before Congress in July 2004.

Thank you for your assistance in our media advocacy. We will not disclose identities to the magazine without further consultation.
