Right to Person Centered Planning

The 1996 revisions to the Mental Health Code require a person centered approach to the planning, selection and delivery of the supports, services and or treatment you receive from the public mental health system.  Person centered planning means the treatment you receive will be made up of activities which you think will help you, which you assist in developing and which meet your goals.

 

This process will determine the supports you want or need to achieve your desired future.  The staff involved in your treatment will encourage feedback from you about these supports, the progress you have made and any changes you think would make your treatment more effective.

 

If you have questions about your right to person centered planning, contact the Office of Recipient Rights at the Detroit Wayne County Community Mental Health Agency at 313-833-2500.
