Dual Diagnosis White Paper

DODD Director John Martin recently released a white paper that was researched and written by our former CEO, Tricia Burke, prior to her tenure with Envision. The research was sponsored by the Ohio Mental Illness Developmental Disability Coordinating Center of Excellence (MI/DD CCOE), and funded by Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OMHAS), Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) & Ohio Developmental Disabilities Council (ODDC). 

The paper is intended to be a helpful tool for direct care staff & professionals working with adults & children with MI/DD. This paper is meant to serve as a bridge for those who are interested in exploring and expanding their understanding and skill set for supporting individuals with complex needs. It provides an overview of the need, historical misunderstandings, guidelines, and examples of traditional mental health practices that have been adapted for individuals with developmental disabilities. Additionally, the white paper outlines helpful books and resources that have emerged for this specialized area of practice. This paper will also be useful to DD professionals seeking a better understanding of the mental health needs of the individuals they serve and therapeutic interventions that might be helpful.
