Supporter Role in the CARE Act

In the CARE process, each individual respondent can choose a supporter. The supporter is an adult that ensures that the CARE process reflects the respondent’s rights and choices. The supporter partners with other CARE participants, including the respondent, counsel, Behavioral Health Agency, and judges. This brief, intended for the general public, helps explain the principles, roles, and trainings available for supporters.
