Publisher: Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law
Description: Based in Washington D.C., the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law is a nonprofit legal advocacy organization for people with mental illness and mental retardation. Operating on the principle that "every individual is entitled to choice and dignity," the Center works to reform public systems and provide fair access to housing, disability benefits, and health care for adults and children with mental disabilities. In addition, the organization has created this site which collects a number of mental health law resources for lawyers, advocates, the mentally disabled, and their families. These include legal decisions, articles, analysis, legislative updates, and forms. Resources are grouped by topic, including ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Issues, Aging Issues, Children's Issues, Fair Housing Issues, and Mental Health Care. Visitors to the site will also find announcements, a collection of briefly annotated disability and advocacy links, and an internal search engine.
