Dual Diagnosis White Paper
Click here to read
DODD Director John Martin recently released a white paper that was
researched and written by our 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. Click here to read whitepaper.
