Health and Mental Health

The Council has funded and been a leader in a number of projects and initiatives focused on helping individuals with developmental disabilities have access to coordinated health, dental, mental health, and other human and social services, including prevention activities, in their communities. Projects have included dental health initiatives that provided training to dental professionals to a series of health, nutrition and fitness classes for individuals with disabilities to linking family members of people with disabilities to medical professionals to offer family-centered training. For more information on any of our initiatives in this area, please contact us.
