Abstract
After an extensive investigation, the United States Department of Justice concludes there is reasonable cause to believe that the State of South Carolina violates Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), by failing to provide services to individuals with serious mental illness in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs. It is critically important to ensure that these individuals are afforded the opportunity to live and receive services in their own homes and communities, consistent with the ADA’s integration mandate.
