In this first episode of the Mental Health Crossroads podcast, we talk to Dr. Matt Wappett from the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University about some of the challenges faced by people with both intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD) and mental health issues. Dr. Wappett highlights the new Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities National Training Center, a collaborative project designed to increase awareness of these issues and prepare direct support workers and clinicians across fields to address the needs of this population, while also elevating the voices and experiences of people that have identified themselves as having IDD and mental health issues.
