Dual-Diagnoses Webinar Series OverviewThe National Association for the Dually Diagnosed

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities may also have mental health and substance use issues that are overlooked. At the same time, traditional behavioral health resources and interventions don’t always take into account the unique needs of someone with I/DD.

Do you have the resources and information you need to support the individuals who rely on your services in the most person-centered and holistic ways?

The American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and NADD, an association for persons with developmental disabilities and mental health needs, are proud to partner together to offer this six-part webinar series that covers topics ranging from relaxation training for individuals with I/DD to supporting psychological resilience in staff.
