Cooperative Project on Dual Diagnosis of Persons with Disabilities

The project (also known as CRSS-Coordinated Resource and Support Services) is designed to support individuals with a dual diagnosis of mental retardation and mental illness in their community and prevent hospital or institutional admission. This is accomplished by providing crisis intervention and needed follow-up services, such as respite care or attendant care for the individual and/or family. Information on community resources is made available to individuals to enable them to identify and access those resources in their home community.
