The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the 1999 Olmstead v. L.C. set the bar for accelerated community inclusion and reduced reliance on institutional care for people with disabilities, across a life span. Since that ruling, our system has been steadily evolving. Now, it is time to take it to the next level with a plan that will advance innovation, coordination and whole-person, systemic change.
All those impacted by Mental Health and/or Substance Use Disorders are invited to participate in a survey to influence this plan.
The survey asks about strengths, gaps, challenges, and ideas stakeholders have regarding services and supports for North Carolinians with disabilities, including children, youth, adults, and older adults. The results of the survey will help to inform the analysis of the states’ resources/services and the recommendations for the states’ Olmstead Plan. The survey is being conducted by Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and responses will be anonymous. It should take about 15 minutes to complete. Click here to participate in the survey.
