ORS 430.071¹
Policy to support and promote self-determination

The Department of Human Services shall adopt a policy that supports and promotes self-determination for persons receiving mental health services. The policy shall be designed to remove barriers that:

(1) Segregate persons with disabilities from full participation in the community in the most integrated setting in accordance with the United States Supreme Court decision in Olmstead v. L.C., 527 U.S. 581 (1999); and

(2) Prevent persons with disabilities from enjoying a meaningful life, the benefits of community involvement and citizen rights guaranteed by law. [2007 c.805 §1]

Note: 430.071 (Policy to support and promote self-determination) to 430.078 (Rules) were enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but were not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 430 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
