DHS and Olmstead Materials

This work is based on local and national expectations in services and supports to people living with mental health conditions. It is meant to enhanced skill and competence of planning professionals in the mental health workforce in Minnesota. Below are some resources and documents you may be interested in related to this work.

The Minnesota Olmstead Plan

The MN Olmstead Plan is a broad series of key activities our state must accomplish to ensure people with disabilities are living, learning, working, and enjoying life in the most integrated setting.  This includes people with mental health and co-occurring conditions who benefit from professional support or services for community living.  Person-centered planning and person-centered practices are foundational to the activities of the MN Olmstead Plan.

The PCICTP and Bulletins

In an effort to support lead agencies in understanding and applying person-centered practices the MN Department of Human Services developed the Person-Centered Informed Choice and Transition Protocols (PCICTP). They also developed three additional bulletins with follow-up guidance. These bulletins are no longer available to the public. However, they were prime sources for original planning of our training product.  To learn more about the Person-Centered Informed Choice and Transition Protocols (PCICTP) and link directly to the document you can go to: https://mn.gov/dhs/partners-and-providers/program-overviews/long-term-services-and-supports/person-centered-practices/pc-ic-tp-faq/

The following bulletins were a starting point for training development:

Lead Agency Requirements for Person-Centered Principles and Practices – Part 1 – An introduction to the requirements for person-centered principles and practices. 

Requirements for Person-Centered Principles and Practices – Part 2- Information to lead agencies about the Person-Centered, Informed Choice and Transition Protocol. 

Lead Agency Requirements for Person-Centered Principles and Practices – Part 3- Information to interested stakeholders about DHS protocols for monitoring lead agency compliance with the Person-Centered, Informed Choice and Transition Protocol.
