The goal of the presentation is to educate our community of what Supported Decision Making is and how it is an alternative to Guardianship/ Conservatorships. In this talk we would fully break down how SDM works, what the benefits are, and where Hawai’i is today with implementing it.

Participants will gain knowledge on Supported Decision Making and be able to answer the following prompts:

-What is Supported Decision Making and how does it work?

-What are the benefits of Supported Decision Making?

-Where is Hawai’i at implementing Supported Decision Making?
