The Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law (BCMHL) is a national, non-profit organization that uses litigation and federal policy reform to define and uphold the legal rights of children, adults, and elderly individuals with mental disabilities and to create approaches to meeting their needs that will assure them choice and dignity. Staff attorneys provide training and technical assistance to legal services, protection and advocacy, state ombudsman programs, and other advocates for low-income individuals and families. The center was formed in 1972 as the Mental Health Law Project; however, its name was changed in 1993 to honor the late Chief Justice of the U.S. Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia Circuit, David L. Bazelon. The center publishes issue papers, booklets, manuals, and periodic newsletters explaining and interpreting major federal laws and regulations that protect the rights of and make resources available to children and adults with disabilities.
