    Mental health advocates fight for more protection in Arizona
    By Tracy Boyd iCan News Service, staff writer June 21, 2000 When the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed 10 years ago, each state amended their civil rights policies to reflect the newly writ ADA. When these laws were enacted in Arizona, however, they only offered employment protection for people with physical disabilities. Those with mental disabilities were excluded. Surprisingly, they still are, 10 years after the ADA. "To us, this is a no-brainer. The law is discriminatory," says Dr. Max E. Dine, a board member of the Mental Health Association of Arizona. He’s part of a coalition, TLW ("Two Little Words"), that is fighting to amend the law and raise awareness. "All we want to do is add two little words, 'and mental,' as in 'with physical and mental disability,' to the wording," says Dine. Repeated attempts by advocates have failed to change the situation; in fact, bills have been introduced numerous times and have been killed each time.

    United Nations Convention on the
    Rights of the Child [Download this whole "chapter" as a PDF The United Nations Treaty called the International Convention on the Rights of the Child ("the Convention") is the most universally accepted human rights instrument in history, having been ratified by every country in the world except the United States. Ratifying a treaty is a more serious final step, usually taken after signing a treaty. This support, by so many countries, gives children a unique place in terms of human rights. By ratifying the Convention, Canada committed itself to protecting and ensuring children's rights, and has agreed to hold itself accountable to this commitment before the international community. This Convention was the first major treaty to state specifically that discrimination on the basis of disability is prohibited (Article 2). This prohibition is merely implied in other UN human rights treaties.

    Section 15 and Section 1 of the
    Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms [Download this whole "chapter" as a PDF Section 15 of the Charter provides as follows:
    Section 15(1) generally applies to legislation and to the policies of governments and public service providers. (See also Human Rights Legislation That Prohibits Discrimination .) The Supreme Court of Canada (Andrews v. The Law Society of British Columbia [1989] 1 S.C.R. at p. 143) interpreted the meaning of "discrimination" in section 15 as follows: The Supreme Court has confirmed the following interpretations of section 15: (i) the right to equal protection under the law includes the right to equality of opportunity and equality of results; and (ii) the right to equal benefit under the law includes the right to unequal distribution of resources, if that approach is needed to deal with unequal needs. The fundamental idea on which equality is based in the Charter is that every person is unique and that such uniqueness must be responded to individually. The practical result of recent related Supreme Court cases is that in most instances, individualized accommodation must be provided if that is needed to prevent or correct discrimination on the ground of disability.

    31. The ADA - A Misunderstood Law
    drastically narrowing who is protected by the Americans with disabilities Act, the that43 million individuals in the US have a physical or mental disability

    A misunderstood law BY ROBERT L. BURGDORF Twelve years ago, as I drafted the original version of the Americans with Disabilities Act, I never dreamed that this landmark civil rights law would become so widely misunderstood and my words so badly misinterpreted particularly by the body meant to protect the very rights guaranteed by the law. In its recent [1999 Sutton] ruling drastically narrowing who is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Supreme Court cited an article I wrote to support its idea that the ADA was intended to cover only 36 million people. The Court's reference to my writing as authority for its decision and express acknowledgment of my having written the original version of the ADA for the National Council on Disability was hugely ironic, however, for I happen to believe that the Court was dead wrong in its decision. The Court rested its ruling on the breadth of this major civil rights law on the interpretation of a congressional finding that 43 million individuals in the U.S. have a physical or mental disability. Justice O'Connor's sophistic reasoning was that the Council and the Congress intended to cover only a narrow group of 36 or 43 million individuals and not a broader class of 160 million people with health conditions that impair the normal functional abilities of an individual. In this bean-counting analysis, Justice O'Connor ignored the fact that the ADA, as originally proposed and as enacted, has a three-prong definition of an individual with a disability. Only the first prong deals with people with an actual disability and that is what the 43 million figure refers to.

    US Airways, Inc. v. Barnett
    Court says ADA does not take precedence over seniority systems On April 29, 2002, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that employees with disabilities are not always entitled to jobs intended for workers with more seniority. The decision is another one in a series of rulings in which the Court has sided with employers instead of workers with disabilities. Read the Supreme Court decision Robert Barnett, a former US Airways baggage handler from San Francisco, injured his back while on the job. At his doctor's suggestion, Barnett was reassigned to the mail room. The company later told Barnett that, according to company policy, he would have to give up that job to make room for another employee that had more seniority. Barnett sued US Airways claiming the company had not given him a reasonable accommodation as required under the ADA. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with Barnett that workers with disabilities should have priority over more senior workers who do not have disabilities. Monday's 5-4 decision overturned the Court of Appeals ruling and sent the case back for further review. The court did say that workers can show "special circumstances'' that would make exceptions reasonable, but that this has to be done on an individual basis.

    Public Policy and The Law
    One of the most active political groups for social and legal reform for the last 30 years has been people with disabilities. People with disabilities and their advocates have created policy changes in every aspect of their lives from education to work environments to housing and more. Since all aspects of life are affected by public policy, the particular issues faced by your family may be different as your child ages. Initially laws governing medical care from HMO's or PPO's may be a primary concern. Educational rights and responsibilities quickly enter your child's world as many services are provided through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Issues of public access to services and places are addressed by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Social Security and other government benefits such as Medicaid and Medicare operate under their own requirements. How do you negotiate the maze to provide the services and supports your child needs? First, become knowledgeable in the pertinent issues and laws. The actual texts of the laws are available from the
