Supports and Services
People with I/DD and mental health needs and their families often struggle to get the help they need. During this presentation, we will review findings from recent projects that explored how to better support people with I/DD and mental health needs and their families. We will share the systemic challenges that reduce the quality of care and life for people and their families; recommendations about what the disability community can do to more effectively support people and families; and recommendations around trainings for professionals around I/DD and mental health. We will also offer an opportunity for participants to reflect and discuss these findings and potential next steps.
