Thank you to all who contributed to the development of Integrated Mental Health Treatment Guidelines for Prescribers in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and prescribers who served as volunteer reviewers. 

Our primary aim is to provide accessible best practice resources with a focus on integrated health and positive medicine for prescribers of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental health needs.

The IDD-MH Prescribing Guidelines were published by the Center for START Services at the University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability/UCED with funding from the WITH Foundation. For more information about the Center for START Services, visit
