Webcast Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the ADA
July 29, 2015 | 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Join SAMHSA in celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA was signed into law on July 26, 1990, guaranteeing American citizens with disabilities—including mental health or substance use conditions—the same rights enjoyed by other citizens. The ADA acknowledges that individuals with disabilities make valuable contributions to the greatness of our nation.
Participants will hear from expert presenters and panelists about the history and accomplishments of the ADA, the Olmstead decision, and the Protection and Advocacy for Individuals With Mental Illness program for Americans with behavioral health conditions. Presenters and panelists include SAMHSA Administrator Pamela S. Hyde, J.D.; Lois Curtis, a plaintiff in the Olmstead case; Richard Rice, whose rights were protected by the ADA; and other experts.
