It's good to know about your RIGHTS.
When you receive mental health services, Michigan's Mental Health Code and other laws safeguard your rights. Staff are responsible to protect your rights when they provide services to you. You are encouraged to ask questions about your treatment and about your rights and to make sugguestions that you feel are in your best interest. If you believe your rights have been violated, you should inform a Rights Officer/Advisor.
If you have any questions about your rights when receiving mental health services, I can help.
