OCL is a nonprofit citizen-based organization created under the auspices of SU Continuing Education 25 years ago to promote citizen education and involvement in public affairs. Each year OCL conducts a study on a topic of importance to the community and releases its findings to public officials and other interested individuals and affected groups. The 2003 OCL study, “Mental Health Services: Access, Availability and Responsiveness” is attempting to determine how well public social policy and the mental health services infrastructure have adapted to support changes in the delivery system and in the needs of consumers.
