In 2015, Stephen Mendelsohn and Cathy Ludlum, both of the disability rights group, Second Thoughts Connecticut, successfully lobbied Connecticut authorities to recognize that everyone, including people with disabilities, have a right to suicide prevention.

Since then, Mendelsohn, Diane Coleman of the disability rights group, Not Dead Yet, and Marsha Katz of Adapt Montana, have been taking the lead to encourage the amendment of other state prevention plans to specifically include people with disabilities.
