Policy Makers and the Alaska Court System

Policy makers and professionals within the Alaska Court System may have questions about supported decision-making, the agreements created by the Supported Decision-Making Agreements Act, or what developments are occurring around the country with this and other alternatives to full guardianship. Resources offered below can help answer questions or provide information to help policy makers understand what SDMAs are and how they are being used to maximize independence and autonomy, restore rights and authority over decision-making, and increase community engagement and safety.

Adult guardianship may not always be the answer. Learn more about Alaska's newest legislation, Supported Decision Making Agreements to see if it might be a tool to use for your situation.
