The literature highlights that individuals with intellectual disabilities experience higher rates of mental illness than non-disabled counter-parts. Despite these increased vulnerabilities, the availability of ID-specific psychiatric and psychological treatments are limited. Please download this edition of The Carlat Report-Psychiatry for an excellent overview of psychiatric services for individuals with dual-diagnosis by Julie Gentile, MD. Additionally, on pages 6-7 there is an introduction to the Skills System that was developed by Julie Brown, PhD. The Skills System is a DBT-based, psychological treatment tool designed to help individuals who experience emotion/behavioral regulation challenges. This newsletter is a wonderful resource for anyone working with individuals who experience complex behavioral health and learning challenges.
