ASERT does not offer crisis services through our Resource Center. If you or someone you love is experiencing mental health distress or thoughts of suicide please call or text 988 for support.
In 2010, the Adult Protective Services (APS) law (Act 70) was enacted to provide protective services to adults between 18 and 59 years of age who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. The law establishes a program of protective services to detect, prevent, reduce, and eliminate abuse, neglect, exploitation and abandonment of adults in need of protective services. The Older Adults Protective Services Act (OAPSA) is the law that safeguards the rights of adults 60 years of age and older while protecting them from abuse, neglect, exploitation and abandonment.
