On June 22, 2022, the United States sent a letter of findings to the State of Maine, notifying the State that it is violating Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act by unnecessarily segregating children with mental health and developmental disabilities. Following an investigation into Maine's behavioral health care system for children, the Department found that Maine fails to provide children with sufficient behavioral health services in their homes and communities. As a result, Maine children may enter institutional settings including psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment facilities, or juvenile detention.
