Person-Centered Practices, Positive Supports and the Jensen Settlement Agreement

The Jensen Settlement Agreement is the result of a lawsuit filed against DHS in 2009 alleging that former Minnesota Extended Treatment Options (METO) program used restraint and seclusion in a way that broke the law and violated the rights of people with disabilities. The Jensen Settlement Agreement allowed the department and the plaintiffs to resolve the claims in a mutually agreeable manner. The Comprehensive Plan of Action outlined the path that the department took to come into compliance with the terms of the agreement.
