People with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities (IDD) are at risk for mental health conditions and may take many medications. Medications are often prescribed and then changed frequently due to incomplete diagnostic information. Communication challenges can affect a person’s ability to report their effectiveness. This webinar will review considerations for the use of psychotropic medication, including the role of the support team in advocating for a person with co-occurring disorders during prescribing, planning, treatment, and recovery. A symptom tracking tool to support person-centered prescribing practices will also be introduced and discussed.
