Your Right to Notice

At the time you make a request for, or when you begin to receive mental health services, you will be given information about the rights guaranteed by Chapter 7 and 7A of the Mental Health Code.  This is called your right to notice.  This is usually done by giving you a booklet with a summary of these rights and by having a complete copy of these chapters of the mental health code available for you to review.

 

If you receive services from a community mental health services program, you should also be given a pamphlet containing information regarding available resources, advocacy and support groups and other relevant information, including how to contact Michigan Protection and Advocacy Services.

 

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