Thank you to the Supported Decision-Making Coalition
Supported Decision Making Coalition
Since 2018, the Supported Decision-Making Advisory Group has facilitated a small committee made up of representatives from a variety of agencies around the state. A work group that formed out of this larger group, was the force behind the development of this Supported Decision-Making Toolkit. Special thanks to the committee members for their time and talents that went into this document's creation.
