The Arc’s Behavioral Health department provides specialized care for people who are dually diagnosed with IDD and Mental health disabilities. The Behavioral Health department works closely with the IDT team to create person-centered behavior support plans that support the person to understand their behavior, meet their needs, communicated their wants, and teach them new skills allowing for self-regulation in more socially appreciate ways. In some cases, people with disabilities within this specialized population need an advocate with expertise to navigate the mental health care system and help steer their care toward less dependence on pharmaceuticals. The Arc’s Behavioral Health department collaborates with the Arc to have behavior support plans and training for staff to implement these plans. The department is growing towards having a sensory library, small group settings for individuals, and resources for parents.
