“Agency’s name change is celebrated”

Article Link

This August 12, 2012 found on The Dallas Post website, talks about the name change of Luzerne-Wyoming Counties Mental Health/Mental Retardation Program to Luzerne-Wyoming Counties Mental Health and Developmental Services.  This change is in response to the Federal legislation removing “retardation” from the language used by the Federal government.  Gov. Corbett followed suit by signing HB458 into law here in Pennsylvania which removes “Mental Retardation” from the MH/MR act of 1966.
