How to Make a Supported Decision-Making Agreement



Supported Decision-Making is a way to get help making choices. Supported Decision-Making means that you make your own choices. You can choose family, friends, or staff who you want to help you make your choices.
The people who will help you understand and make your choices are called “supporters”.

Supporters are there to help you. You are the one who makes the final decision. You are called the “decider”.

This book will help you start using Supported Decision-Making.

You should read and talk about this book with people you trust. This book has questions and activities that will help you think about how you want to use Supported Decision-Making.

It will take a while to read through this book and do all of the activities. You might spend a month or more working on it. That’s ok! Doing Supported Decision-Making takes time.
