This guidebook gives caregivers the tools they need to understand how mental illness might look in a person with a developmental disability, and information on what to do and where to go for help. It was written in order to help caregivers to partner with health care providers. This guidebook was originally written in 2011 and was revised in 2015. It was created for the New York State Institute for Health Transition Training with grant support from the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council.
The Safer Society Foundation maintains a national database of professionals who provide specialized treatment services for persons with sexual behavior problems. This web site seeks to provide information and resources related to many aspects of sexual abuse and its societal impacts. Safer Society Press distributes books on prevention, treatment, and policy for survivors, persons in treatment, families, and professionals. Safer Society Foundation also provides a tool for finding providers - there are currently very few residential treatment programs in New York State providing treatment for this cohort of youth.
