Dual Diagnosis: An Information Guide was developed for the families of people who have developmental disabilites and mental health problems. It provides basic information about dual diagnosis and explains what we know about services and supports and how best to access them. It also suggests ways to take care of yourself while caring for your family member.

From a family member:

"This guide gives us very useful information and points us to sources that can answer our questions, and to alternatives to consider."
