Bazelon Releases New Report on Supportive Housing and the ADA

Written by:

at April 1, 2014

I just received the following from the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law (http://www.bazelon.org) regarding a new report they issued on the ADA and integrated housing opportunities for people with mental illness called, “A Place of My Own: How The ADA Is Creating Integrated Housing Opportunities For People With Mental Illnesses.” I have attached the article for your review.

According to the Bazelon Center: “A Place of My Own is designed to provide guidance and thought leadership to nationwide stakeholders about how the ADA has been and can be used in the future to create supported housing for individuals with mental illnesses who are needlessly institutionalized or at risk of needless institutionalization. The report describes what the ADA’s integration mandate and the Supreme Court’s Olmstead decision require, how they have promoted the development of supported housing for individuals with mental illnesses, what supported housing should look like, and how investment in supported housing will help states comply with their legal obligation to administer services to individuals with disabilities in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs.”

The report is attached and can also be downloaded for free at: www.bazelon.org/portals/0/Where We Stand/Community Integration/Olmstead/A Place of My Own. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law.pdf
