Many people with mental illness and with disabilities want to live and fully participate in their communities, and they have a civil right to do so under the Americans with Disabilities Act (Olmstead v L.C., 1999). A clear goal of community integration is one hallmark of effective approaches for people with mental illness and disabilities to transition to the community from an institution. Featuring a top national expert, a center for independent living, and a large health system, the webinar will reveal effective strategies for supporting individuals as they find homes in the community, arrange for services individuals need and choose, and integrate into community life. Participants will be able to ask questions to help them form similar community-driven partnerships. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Also, the webinar will include real-time captioning and American Sign Language remote video interpreting. If any additional accommodations are needed or there are any questions, please send an email to the Housing and Services Resource Center at HSRC@acl.hhs.gov.
