United Way of Broward County Commission on Behavioral Health & Drug Prevention (UWBCCBHDP) supports and protects the fundamental human, civil, constitutional and statutory rights of each participant.
Participants are treated with full respect and dignity regardless of race, religion, sex, ethnicity, physical disability, age, sexual orientation or mental illness.
Participants will be made aware of their rights when signing up for any prevention services offered by UWBCCBHDP. UWBCCBHDP will make staff members available to answer any questions or concerns, respond to problems or complaints, and to assist in any way to assure that their rights are protected and respected.
Participants, including family members and/or guardians of the participant, may file grievances for any reason with cause and have access to grievance forms at all times. All parties who express their right to file a grievance will be free from harassment or retribution, as protected by State and Federal Laws.
If the service in question is funded by the Broward Behavioral Health Coalition (BBHC), the participant may appeal to the BBHC for a final determination directly by calling 1-877-698-7794.
A participant may, at any time, contact the Department of Children and Families Participant Relations Specialist/Human Rights Advocacy Committee (954-713-3027) or Abuse Hotline (1-800-96ABUSE) to express a complaint.
