Episode 5: Supported Decision-Making

Thursday, December 15, 2016

This episode of You First features Mike McCreight, a young adult who was previously placed in a plenary guardianship but is now once again able to make his own decisions, and Mike's attorney, Amanda Heystek, who is Director of Systems Reform at Disability Rights Florida. We talk with Mike about the restrictive situation he was forced into, how Amanda was able to help Mike by replacing the guardianship with a supported decision-making contract, and how Mike’s life has changed since that time.
