Behavioral Support Services

MCBDD’s Human Rights Committee oversees the development and implementation of behavioral support strategies that include restrictive measures across all settings and services. Restrictive measures include violations of the Bill of Rights (ORC 5123.62), manual restraints, mechanical restraints, chemical restraints, and time-out. The committee also safeguards individuals’ rights and protects individuals from physical, emotional, and psychological harm.

Behavioral Consultants and Support Administrators will have contact with the Human Rights Committee if a restrictive measure is needed to help protect an individual or those around them. Please contact the MCBDD Human Rights Chairperson, Ashley Handel, at 330-797-2964 if you have any questions or would like any guidance for a specific situation. Please also contact us if you are interested in serving as a committee member. Family members, eligible individuals, and Behavioral Consultants are welcome.
