Supported Decision Making for Youth Transitioning to Adulthood

Supported decision making is an alternative to guardianship through which people use friends, family members and professionals to help them understand situations and choices they face, so they may make their own decisions without the “need” for guardianship. It is an emerging approach to providing decision-making assistance without imposing any long-term legal limitations on rights or personal liberties. (Blanck & Martinis, 2015). This NH Family Voices flyer explores this and outlines the legal tools to support decision-making.
