Hope, Healing and the ADA: New Perceptions on Mental Health

July 12, 2016

Join us Tuesday August 9th at 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Institute for Human Centered Design, 200 Portland Street Boston, MA 02114

In recognition of the 26th Anniversary of the ADA, join us for ice cream and discussion with Oryx Cohen of the Empowerment Center and Co-Producer of "Healing Voices" a new documentary. Oryx will show clips of the new documentary, 'Healing Voices'.

26 years after the passage of the ADA it is clear that people with mental health and substance use issues are still far from a central concern in considering who has rights and who has responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It might be the right time and place to revitalize attention to integrating people with mental health and substance use conditions into the promise of the ADA.

RSVP: Stacy Hart, New England ADA Center at 800-949-4232 or shart@IHCDesign.org

Please submit accommodation requests by Thursday, August 4th.
