What Services Does a Dual Diagnosis Program Offer?
North American Mental Health Services Dual Diagnosis program provides services for people navigating the complexities of both mental illness and IDD. We know that therapy changes people’s lives and that each person may need something different.
Having a dual diagnosis program requires additional training for staff to be able to provide specialized care. Our team receives monthly training on intellectual and developmental disabilities. We also inform staff of further resources available in the Shasta community. Face-to-face training at our Regional Center services often explores the five categories that qualify individuals for Dual Diagnosis services.
Within medical and educational fields, there is sometimes a lack of formal IDD training. Professionals such as Registered Nurses and Psychiatrists may not have received specific IDD training during their education. NAMHS recognizes this gap and actively works to fill it, making them progressive in their offers.
