Supported Decision Making
Supported Decision Making is about helping people with disabilities (such as severe mental illness) make as many decisions about their own lives as possible. Conservatorship allows someone else to make decisions for you. Right now, many Tennesseans do not know there are other options for help in making decisions. The Tennessee Council on Developmental Disabilities is working to educate Tennesseans with disabilities, their families and professionals who support them about less restrictive alternatives like supported decision making.
