Mental Illness/Intellectual Disabilities Coordinating Center of Excellence (MI/ID CCOE)

Mental Illness and Intellectual DisabilityApproximately 1.5% of all Ohioans have been diagnosed with an intellectual disability, and approximately one third of these individuals have a co-occurring diagnosis of mental illness. The co-occurrence of an intellectual disability and a mental illness is generally termed a dual diagnosis. In 2004, the Ohio Department Mental Health and Addiction Services and Wright State University partnered to provide resources in support of excellent treatment and care of individuals with a dual diagnosis. The result of this partnership is the Mental Illness/Intellectual Disabilities Coordinating Center of Excellence (MIID CCOE).

The CCOE provides administrative and clinical support and education, specialized psychiatric assessment and client specific consultation, and technical assistance in support of developing local collaboration. One example of local collaboration includes Mental Illness/Intellectual Disability (MI/ID) Teams which are described below.
