Reminder: Dual Diagnoses Recommendations Needed
August 30, 2013

An August 21 Info requested  that providers submit recommendations and identify barriers to development and implementation of services for individuals with both intellectual or developmental disabilities and mental illnesses. The deadline to submit comments has been extended to September 4. Compiled information may be used to develop training, formulate legislative talking points, and lead system change. Members are asked to comment on issues such as financial incentives for training and certification, staffing needs, and regulatory barriers and changes needed. Information about the number of individuals with dual diagnoses that members serve, the number of staff who work with these individuals, and the general length of service of staff is appreciated. Comments are requested by September 4 to Linda Drummond  or Betty Simmonds.
