Disability Rights Oregon protects and advocates for the rights of people who have a mental illness or perceived mental illness.
DRO receives funding from Protection & Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) (42 U.S.C. § 10801, P.L. 106-310), which authorizes P&As to protect and advocate for the rights of people with mental illness and investigate reports of abuse and neglect in facilities. It is administered by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
