Do you need information regarding Guardianship and the new Supported Decision Making (SDM) law effective July 2019?

Join Disability Rights Maine (DRM) for training on Supported Decision-Making and the recent changes to Maine's Probate Code. Supported Decision-Making (SDM) is an alternative to guardianship that allows people with disabilities to retain their decision-making capacity by choosing supports to help them make choices. This training will provide information about SDM and how SDM and other less restrictive alternatives are included in the new probate code, effective July 2019.

This meeting is open to MBH clients and their families who are currently in a parenting or caregiving role. (Parents, grandparents, kinship, etc.). MBH staff are also welcome to attend.
