Questions for presenters:

1 Is it not a violation of ADA to have exclusionary criteria for admission to mental health units and psychiatric facilities? We see SO OFTEN that exclusionary criteria include:persons living with Intellectual and/or a Developmental Disability (I/DD), Autism, and/or people who are nonverbal. Please address this issue that is forcing far too many community members into jails and the criminal legal system because they are excluded from accessing the services/treatment they need. Also - people with I/DD are excluded from treatment services for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) - again - this is discriminatory. Please address this during your event.
