National Research Consortium on MHIDD

Visit the National Research Consortium on MHIDD Website

In 2019, the Center for START Services established the National Research Consortium on Mental Health in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (NRC-MHIDD). The goal of this collaboration is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of individuals with IDD, their families and communities. Partnering with stakeholders in the prioritization, development and dissemination of best-practice research will uniquely allow us to improve the quality of care delivered to those with IDD across the country. The National Research Consortium on MHIDD is comprised of people with lived experiences (including self-advocates and family members), caregivers, trainees, researchers, policy experts, and clinicians from over 30 organizations across the US including several UCEDDs, medical schools, state health departments, and service providers.  > Learn More about the NRC
