Since the foundation of The Mandt System, Inc in 1975 the voice of the ‘Service User‘ their Families, Caregivers and Advocates has been as important a part of our consideration, as the organizations with whom we seek to partner. For most, if not all, the Mandt Faculty members have arrived at a relationship with the Mandt System, Inc and The Mandt System® program through an earnest desire to improve the quality of experience and outcomes for staff and individuals served through the different agencies and organizations within which we live and serve individual users. So often the absence of Dignity & Respect has characterized our experience in meeting the needs of individuals who were fearful, confused, angry and in pain. The desire and commitment to Restraint Reduction and Elimination, coupled to proven approaches to minimize the re-traumatization of individuals served, has never moved from ‘center place’ in our objective and commitment.

An active and ongoing engagement with those individuals served by the organizations that use The Mandt System is a foundational cornerstone to Restraint Reduction & Seclusion Elimination Agenda to which we are committed.
