NC Olmstead Plan Listening Session: Persons with Lived Experience MH/SUD

August 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) has entered into a contract with the Technical Assistance Collaborative, Inc. (TAC) to provide technical assistance and consultation services for the development of NCDHHS’s Olmstead Plan.  Olmstead Plans are named after the 1999 U. S. Supreme Court decision, Olmstead v. L. C., in which the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that states should reduce unnecessary segregation of persons with disabilities and ensure that people receive services in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs.

TAC is conducting an assessment of the systems in North Carolina that serve and support individuals with disabilities. The assessment will seek to identify the strengths of, as well as the gaps in, services and supports for individuals with disabilities and any barriers that exist in accessing services and supports.  It is important that we hear about the desires and service needs for individuals with disabilities to live in the community from the broad base of involved stakeholders, to inform North Carolina’s Olmstead Plan. The Listening Sessions are intended to provide an opportunity for broad-based, statewide input.

Participation for each session will be limited to no more than 100 persons. Join early!
