Wyoming and Olmstead: A Primer on Department of Health Initiatives and Policies

Wyoming

“The State of Wyoming developed its Olmstead plan in June, 2000 and subsequently updated the plan in 2002, and 2013. Since 2013, Wyoming has worked to improve the availability and quality of community services for those with mental illness, physical and intellectual disabilities, and aging issues to help enable those residents of our state to live productive lives in the least-restrictive, most-integrated community settings.

This document serves as a further update to Wyoming’s Olmstead plan. The pages that follow provide background on the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH), background on the Olmstead decision, as well as Wyoming’s progress toward its goals related to Olmstead, and the continued challenges faced by the state.”
