Mental Health Services
DDHA offers mental health treatment services to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Mental health services can be provided without primary care services, however, this is not preferred. DDHA is most successful when it is able to integrate primary care and specialty health care, such as seizure management when necessary, with the provision of mental health services. DDHA does not generally offer mental health counseling services but does provide behavioral services and supports through contracts with state agencies. See the Statewide Community Integration Program (SCIPP) and Children’s System of Care services.
Access to primary care services can be arranged by contacting one of DDHA’s local offices. Each office is staffed by a nurse practitioner, physician and additional dedicated support staff.
