I/DD & Mental Health Focus Group

The Arc Baltimore in collaboration with the Family Support Research and Training Center and The Arc of the United States is hosting a focus group on intellectual and developmental disabilities and co-occurring mental health needs. The small group discussion will explore the training needs of and barriers that disability, mental health, and education professionals face when serving people with I/DD and co-occurring mental health challenges.
