I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.

Education and Consultation


  • We provide education to patients, facility staff, family members and the general public on laws governing patients' rights. 

  • To request education services, including to arrange a presentation, contact us at the numbers listed below.


  • We provide consultation to treatment staff and administrators to help them appropriately apply the law to treatment decisions.

  • Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Administrators, etc., consult us on cases where the laws sometimes seem to interfere with what they deem to be the clinical best interests of patients. 

  • Our familiarity with the law and its legislative intent allows us to provide creative solutions to these problems to assist the facility in minimizing potential liabilities that may emerge from decisions they make.
