Olmstead Plan for Pennsylvania's State Mental Health System

This Olmstead Plan for the Pennsylvania State Mental Health system was developed to reflect the commonwealth's decision to end the unnecessary institutionalization of adults who have a serious and persistent mental illness. The plan details the specific steps that the commonwealth will take to achieve that goal within a reasonable time frame.

It is the mission and vision of the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services …”For every individual served by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Service system to have the opportunity for growth, recovery and inclusion in their community, have access to culturally competent services and supports of their choice, and to enjoy a quality of life that includes family members and friends.”  This plan will help to make that vision a reality.
