Description

On February 22, 2010 The Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity presented a discussion titled: Mental Health Reform Since Olmstead: A Discussion of the Marlo M. Case In late 2009, Disability Rights North Carolina (DRNC) sued the NC Department of Health and Human Services in federal court, seeking to block the state from reducing funds for services that allow people with disabilities to lead independent lives.  DRNC filed the case on behalf of Marlo M. and Durwood W., two NC residents with developmental disabilities and mental illness, who have been integrated into their communities for years.  Without these services, the plaintiffs--and others like them--may be placed in an institutionalized setting: a potentially costly, disruptive and harmful outcome. Come hear speakers from DRNC discuss the mental health delivery system and the prospects for reform through litigation. Speakers: . John Rittelmeyer, Litigation Director, DRNC . Holly Stiles, Staff Attorney, DRNC . Andrew Strickland, Staff Attorney, DRNC
