Introduction and Guide to Supported Decision-Making



The Minnesota Department of Human Services invites you to learn more about supportive decision making. Individuals, regardless of a disability, have the right to be involved and integrated into their community. Supportive decision making is an approach for reducing the need for restrictive proceedings where an individual’s right to make choices is taken away.

As part of Minnesota’s efforts to support person-centered planning, and services that promote choice and integration, DHS is pleased to present this video introduction, presented by Jonathan Martinis, senior director for law and policy at the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University.
