Presenter:
Deirdre O'Reilly, LCSW
Vice Present of the ARC of Passaic/Bergen

Mental health – we all have it! However, adults with I/DD are 6 times more likely than their peers to develop a mental illness. This webinar will look at the importance of an accurate diagnosis, look at trauma risks, and seek appropriate care and treatment. Protective and preventative strategies for developing mental wellness will be discussed, such as stress reduction, making and maintaining healthy relationships, promoting a sense of purpose, and the importance of parent self-care.
