The counseling center's executive director, Ann J. Robison, said she urges the American Psychiatric Association to formally adopt the statement when it meets in July. "Montrose Counseling Center's therapists help clients on a daily basis deal with the mental health impact of being continually marginalized, and all of the political attention focused on banning so- called 'gay marriages' creates an atmosphere where sexual minorities get the message that they are 'less-than' and undeserving of equal rights," she said.

Montrose Counseling Center urges passage of psychiatric association statement The Montrose Counseling Center is urging the American Psychiatric Association's board of trustees to adopt a statement drafted by the organization's advisory group on the subject of recognizing marriage equality for same-sex couples. The statement reads: "Heterosexual relationships have a legal framework for their existence through civil marriage. Samesex couples therefore experience several kinds of sanctioned discrimination that can adversely affect the stability of their local news Unauthorized press release causes concern for agencies From staff and wire reports Officials of two AIDS service agencies fear an unauthorized press release could cause confusion among donors By BINNIE FISHER A press release dated May 20,2005, and widely circulated among Houston gay media and AIDS funding sources announced the 2006 merger of the Montrose Clinic and the Assistance jFund. There's just one little problem, there is no merger between the two agencies. "That press release was unauthorized, and we don't know where it came from." said Katy Caldwell, executive director of the Montrose Clinic. "This didn't come from either of our agencies." As soon as officials at the clinic and the Assistance Fund learned about the press release, a release with the logos of both agencies was issued dispelling the claims. "This type of false information is damaging because it creates confusion with donors and clients," the official release reads. While the two entities have signed no formal merger agreements, Caldwell Katy Caldwell, executive director of the Montrose Clinic, said a merger like the one detailed in the unauthorized release is not out of the question in a day when all agencies are seeking better ways to serve their clients. (Photo by Dalton DeHart) said, the idea is not out of the question. "We look at all kinds of ways to better serve our clients," she said. "It's not something we've ruled out, but it's not something we can formally discuss." As the official release points out. a recently signed agreement between the Montrose Clinic and Walgreen's is an example of a new innovation that will benefit not only Montrose Clinic patients, but also clients of the Assistance Fund. Ken Malone, executive director of the Assistance Fund, said he wonders about the motivation of whoever sent out an erroneous press release about a merger between his agency and the Montrose Clinic. (Photo by Dalton DeHart) With a Walgreen's Pharmacy onsite at the clinic, clients will experience the convenience of being able to purchase medications at the time of their clinic appointments, rather than having to make a stop on the way home. The phantom release - on plain paper with no logos and no contact information - contains a number of inaccuracies. Malone pointed out that the release indicated the two agencies have "signed a memorandum of merger under which the two AIDS service organizations will merge into one agency in 2006." Malone, who has headed the Assistance Fund for a number of years, said the term "memorandum of merger" is foreign to him. In addition to grammatical errors, he said, the release also contains other false information. The release indicates that while under the merger agreement, Caldwell would remain as executive director. Malone would leave the agency to become a lobbyist for AIDS causes. "Ken is not leaving." Caldwell said. "He is not moving to Washington, D.C." Malone said the origin of the news release is a mystery, but the boards of both agencies will be attempting to determine who may have written it. He said whoever wrote the release was somewhat knowledgeable about both the clinic and the Assistance Fund. The release was sent out not only to the media but also to funding sources for the clinic and the Assistance Fund, leaving Malone to wonder about motivation. Both agencies derive their funding from public and private sources, including those provided under the Ryan White Title I Care Act. The clinic offers HIV testing and healthcare services for people with HIV/AIDS. The Assistance Fund helps people with AIDS keep their health insurance by helping to pay premiums and assists with medication purchases.
