NARPA's 17th Annual Rights Conference
Albany, NY, Marriott
November 19-22, 1998

The National Association for Rights Protection and Advocacy (NARPA) is dedicated to promoting and pursuing those strategies that represent the preferred options of people diagnosed as or perceived as mentally disabled. The "fundamental mission of NARPA is to help empower people who have been labeled mentally disabled so that they may learn to independently exercise their rights." NARPA engages in education, training, and legal intervention on behalf of the rights of its constituency. It monitors developing trends in mental health law and identifies systemic issues and alternative strategies in mental health service delivery on a national scale. NARPA and its members have submitted amicus briefs in many cases in federal and state courts.
